The Einstein Gala is New Mexico’s biggest science party of the year! This prestigious black-tie event is the Museum’s most important fundraising event and features a cocktail reception with an amazing silent auction filled with the most unique items in Albuquerque, a delicious dinner experience among some of the most brilliant minds in science and history and thrilling entertainment featuring science experiments that will knock your socks off!
The evening will also provide the opportunity to honor Gwyneth Cravens, author of Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy, as the recipient of the 2015 National Award of Nuclear Science & History. To learn more about Gwyneth Cravens and past award recipients, click here.
Proceeds from the Einstein Gala help support the Museum’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs for K-12 students as well as professional development workshops for science and math teachers.
We ask guests to “Think Geek” for the 18h Annual Einstein Gala - taking place on Saturday, March 21, 2015, at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown Hotel - and prepare to enjoy an evening of scientific fun to raise money for a great cause!
Doors will open to a Silent Auction overflowing with uniquely sensational items at 5:30 p.m., and dinner and science fun will follow at 7:00 p.m.
This will be an evening to remember, so much so that it flows into the next morning!
