The $5m donation from the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation will go towards designing and constructing the Anything’s Possible Climber.

The climber, designed by Gyroscope Inc, will be a learning experience that covers four floors of the El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center.

The Anything’s Possible Climber will test motor skills and offer exciting challenges, hidden surprises and unique views of the museum in El Paso, Texas.

“Sincere thanks to the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation for its stalwart belief in this project,” said Eric Pearson, president and CEO of the El Paso Community Foundation.

“This interactive venue will be world-class, and it would not have happened in this way had the Hunt Family and others not stepped up,” added Pearson.

“We are really thankful for their profound impact on this endeavor, enabling El Paso’s educational opportunities and quality of life to climb to new heights.”

The El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center is a collaboration between the City of El Paso and the El Paso Community Foundation. It is under construction and expected to complete in 2022.

Alongside the climber, the museum will feature nine themed zones inspired by the air, water, weather and sounds of the desert Southwest.

“Our mission is to launch imagination and spark discovery and the climber will serve as an interactive encounter while providing mindful inspiration for everyone who enters the building,” said Stephanie Otero, VP of operations for the El Paso Community Foundation.

“We are grateful to the Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation. Their generosity will bring this signature experience to life.”

In October, architecture firm Snøhetta revealed its designs for the El Paso Children’s Museum and Science Center, the first purpose-built children’s museum in El Paso.
