  Thank you for being the neatest person to come along for the South Florida Science Museum in a LONG time. I'd also like to thank you for the loan of all the wonderful space artifacts. I especially want to thank you for the extra things supplied for the Aero-Space Week program.

Jim Rollings - Executive Director
South Florida Science Museum

 This is fantastic!  The sub looks amazing!  Awesome, awesome, awesome.

Thanks for putting in the time and effort. 

Glad the Solar Express is coming back online. 

Rhys Williams - Executive Chairman
South Florida Science Museum


   It went so well you’d think we planned it! Many thanks for all your efforts with the Sub and in the Dedication Ceremonies.

Another extremely positive reinforcement of who we are…

Charlie Hamilton - Executive Director
South Florida Science Museum

 Thank you Rick for your help, dedication and persistence.

Derek M. - VP Operations
South Florida Science Museum


   I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for the SFSM.

Janie Fogt - Board of Trustees


   That is wonderful news. Even without the press this is generating, taking a piece of science history which was rusting in our backyard and turning it back into something that “wows” visitors is truly admirable. As we continue progress forward in making the SFSM a destination here in South Florida, it’s wonderful to have a few quick-wins like this which tell the public that “something good is going on over there.”

   Your dedication and hard work are certainly appreciated. Keep up the good work!

Daniel Cain - Exhibits Committee Chairman


What a wonderful job you have done.  The sub is a real plus for the Museum.

Nancy Myers - Board of Trustees


  Thank you for this donation – how wonderful! This will be a great addition to our IT equipment.

Rachael Docekal - VP of Institutional Advancement

RICK Newman & Co - Science Museum Board member

   You are on the ball and green and saving energy is what it is all about...carbon footprints, ect.

   Your ideas are most important........your robots walk and talk! Your trains run on the sun!

   A science museum with LEED certification the way to go.


Robert Gottlieb - Board of Trustees


   A word of thanks for all your help and generosity with the opening of Robotics. Bob May was a great addition to the program. I am told that the members preview was the best ever attended. We had more than 600 show up (a record).

   Again, Thanks for your support of the museum.

Bob Callahan - Executive Director
South Florida Science Museum

   You have outdone yourself. How can we thank you enough? I played with the (Solar Express) trains today and went bonkers! I love it and the whole world will love it. Thank you. Thank you.
