September has arrived and kids are back in school. This month we are focusing on how Richlite has found its way into schools, colleges and educational institutes throughout the world. Architects and interior designers hired for educational projects choose Richlite for a variety of reasons.
Kids Quest a non profit museum in Bellevue, Washington quickly outgrew their first location and campaigned for a larger and more permanent home. The museum reached out to us in hopes of finding the right material for the construction of their new space. We were happy to support their cause and donated some of our material to the interior construction of their new building.
Shelley Saunders, director of advancement, knew that the material they sought needed to be durable, machinable and easy to clean. With all the little hands touching and interacting with surfaces during art and science projects they wanted to make sure they chose the right material for the job. It also needed to be safe, and thanks to the machinability of Richlite it was easy to round the edges to ensure safety. We are excited to see how Kids Quest will continue to support families in their community by teaching through play, exploration and a hands on approach.
