The El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center and La Rodadora Interactive Space, the children’s museum in Ciudad Juarez, will share an interactive exhibit that will allow visitors of both museums to engage in shared experiences.
The partnership was made possible by Transtelco, the leading multinational fiber infrastructure communication solutions provider between the U.S. and Mexico. Transtelco will provide the crucial high-speed connectivity to make this exhibit a reality.
“We are excited. Thanks to Transtelco’s generosity, we will have a shared interactive exhibit with La Rodadora that will erase the border and connect our shared blue sky,” said Stephanie Otero, Interim Director and Vice President of Operations for the El Paso Community Foundation.
“We are very grateful for the support from Transtelco, for their great vision and mission to unite both communities through art, science, and technology. It will be a great experience for Ciudad Juárez and El Paso. It has taken years of planning to create a unique and spectacular experience and we are thrilled to see it coming to life,” said Karen Alamo, La Rodadora Interactive Space Executive Director.
A spokesperson from Transtelco added, “Visits to museums are deeply personal and linked to the sense of creativity, identity, and community. Since our founding, we’ve sought to unite the U.S. and Mexico through connectivity technologies. We’re proud to be able to take our goal one step further by supporting the partnership between El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center and La Rodadora Interactive Space.”
Because user experience was the top priority in the design of the joint exhibit, it will be creative, surprising, and enabled by the latest connectivity technology.
Specific details for the interactive exhibit will be revealed when the El Paso museum’s doors open to the public in 2022.
The El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center is a special project of the public-private partnership of the El Paso Community Foundation and the City of El Paso. It was approved by El Paso voters as part of a Quality of Life Bond election in 2012, and is now under construction in downtown El Paso.
