Its new home will feature a planetarium, and interactive science, space and technology exhibits for kids.  The money comes from voter-approved education bonds.  The center will be housed on the old Sacramento PG&E Power Station property on Jibboom Street.  The center's Michelle Wong says the existing facility on Auburn Boulevard has outgrown its space.

MICHELLE WONG: "A new robotics lab on our existing site was built in a portable building and so we created some new robotics programs.  We have created several new camps for our summer camps programs.  We just launched our first robotics team. "

Wong says they still need to raise 39 million dollars to complete the project by 2013.  Wong says she is working on securing more education bond money and private business investment in the form of naming rights.
