Bay Area Discovery Museum

For anyone with young children in the Bay Area, The Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) needs no introduction. It is a leader in the development of very young brains in the Bay Area, and is known throughout the world by child development specialists. The "exhibits" are fun, interactive experiences that challenge kids and encourage them to develop both their cognitive and motor skills in unique and interesting ways. Learn more at

When their IT person was no longer able to handle their technology, they put the word out. Two Cobaltix clients are board members at BADM, and each one individually recommended Cobaltix to take over - and they weren't the only ones.

After an initial visit, we determined that the museum would require five times more IT than they currently had budgeted for to "do it right". When we brought this up to them, they didn’t want to pay for as much work as we deemed needed. They had no idea that we were planning on donating the time necessary to make everything work. In the last 2 years, Cobaltix has donated a quarter million dollars in services. In addition, we have helped find hardware donations and/or hardware for a fraction of the real cost. Their technology and the work they are doing for the kids has greatly benefitted as a result of the work we have done there. As we continue working with the Museum, we see them doing better and better things for kids.
