One of the best educational and extremely well presented places we have ever visited. Born and grew up in Seattle but retired in Palm Springs, I’ve known Gates and endeavors quite well. We definitely will be back to absorb more and see the outstanding difference he and Melinda’s team makes every day. Very proud to have known and his mom and dad’ work here!
Fascinating and informative. If you like learning about innovation and how innovation can help improve people’s lives, this is a great place to go. I spent 2 hours here enjoying reading about various innovations (from portable water filter to vaccine insulators) and the populations who are now using them. It was eye opening. Don’t miss the bathrooms, where you can enjoy some eye opening sanitation facts. All in all, I came out more informed and motivated. Two thumbs up.
