Help Us Obtain the Old Winter Park Library As Our New HQ

Help Us Obtain the Old Winter Park Library As Our New HQ

We see the former Winter Park library (at 460 E. New England Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789) as the perfect launchpad and headquarters for SOAR™. Being central to the prestigious Rollins college and community allows us to be more visible and accessible to the students of Rollins, enabling hub innovation student integration, business incubation, internship opportunities, and more. Being situated in Central Florida puts us within a reasonable distance to all of Florida’s brightest students as well as a close proximity to the Kennedy Space Center, Patrick Space Base, and the Space X Program.

We Have Great Plans For This Venue & Winter Park

We Have Great Plans For This Venue & Winter Park

Our Aerospace Museum™ (SOAR™) will display interactive exhibits that explore the future of Aerospace technology and how it plays a direct role in humankind’s future. Our SOAR Planetarium™ will offer a glimpse into the cosmos and inspire enthusiasm in space and earth science. The SOAR Planetarium™ is a theatre built primarily for presenting educational and entertaining shows about astronomy and the night sky, or for training in celestial navigation. The projection can be created in various ways, such as a star ball, slide projector, video, full dome projector systems, and lasers. In addition to the museum and planetarium, is our SOAR Auditorium™. While presenting our highly educational and inspirational talks on earth and space science, we will explore the outermost reaches of our inquisitive minds by hosting our Q & A Podcasts directly from the SOAR Museum™ floor. The topics will be covered by our guest speakers from local and international sources, connecting us on a global level. Our SOAR Museum™ is a unique immersive facility used to support the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and to cross learning disciplines into art, culture and history.

The second-floor learning center will host our STEM education Space Camp program. Here students will have a launchpad to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics with a hands-on approach to problem solving while developing skillsets in teamwork and communication. From here we will launch our one-of-a-kind interactive online program called (Passport 2 SuccessTM) involving K through 12th grade students. This program supports the student – parents – teachers in an online STEM education learning process at no charge. Here, students will engage in multiple STEM learning activities that are fun and inspiring. Our in-house design algorithms will help us to understand where our child’s strengths and weaknesses are in order to better prepare for a successful transition into college and then the work force. Passport 2 SuccessTM is supported by a multitude of university partners that are just waiting to acquire these STEM learned students with the potential of offering full or partial scholarships. Then our supporting casts of industry partners are waiting to offer these graduates opportunities into the workforce.

The 3rd floor will host our corporate headquarters and a business incubation program that will include individual open-air office spaces with a shared conference room, computer room, kitchenette, makers lab and presentation room. Here, business minded college students can work on their concepts and be mentored in business strategies to kick start their business ideas. These business and research ventures will be vetted by our volunteer staff members. All innovative ideas will be designed to better support our earth and space environments/technologies.

By supporting the SOAR Museum™ project (501C3) non-profit, Winter Park will benefit directly from SOAR’s ability to present Winter Park as an Innovation Hub and educational landmark. Our educational STEM Space Camp programs will support and accelerate the learning capabilities of our youth locally and nationally. We will be able to offer numerous yearly internships for college students and develop startup companies through our incubation programs. Our presence will assist local businesses in retail sales and work opportunities here in Winter Park. We will build working relationships with local schools and universities to expand our innovation hub network. Through our international presence, industry and university partners and international ambassadorship, we will put Winter Park on the global map.

Bring SOAR to Winter Park

Dear Winter Park,

Please approve SOAR Museum's proposal to make its new home in the old Winter Park library at 1052 W Morse Blvd, Winter Park, FL 32789. As discussed on their official site, SOARMuseum.org, this building is perfect for launching this fantastic space program and will bring much attention and opportunity to Winter Park's children.

I wholeheartedly stand behind this wonderful project. I know that it will be good for the city, good for our children, good for local business, and, ultimately, good for the future of mankind as a whole. Having SOAR here would attract great minds who will visit, attend our schools, educate and ignite the fire of adventure and space exploration in our young ones. During the next stage in the history of space exploration, Winter Park can be an important location on the map.

Thank you for considering my thoughts and my desire for SOAR to receive long-term tenancy in the former Winter Park library building. I am convinced that there are no better options for this building.
