Discover the NASA experience inside Fremont Bank Studio 1 at Chabot Space & Science Center

Play among the stars inside Fremont Bank Studio 1 -- a 3,600-square-foot gallery full of interactive exhibits featuring The NASA Experience at the newly refurbished Chabot Space & Science Center, opening to the public November 12.

Fremont Bank Foundation sponsored $500,000 for the redeveloped studio space, and the sponsorship helped drive Chabot’s transformational renovations. The Foundation’s donation also will continue to help support Chabot’s accessible STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) programming at the Center and throughout the community.

“Fremont Bank Foundation is a true advocate for education, particularly around science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math,” said Brian Hughes, Fremont Bank executive vice president and Fremont Bank Foundation president and executive director. “Naming Studio 1 after Fremont Bank is a fitting tribute to the kid in all of us while we also celebrate Chabot’s Bay Area legacy and its exciting new visitor center — The NASA Experience.”

Additionally, Fremont Bank’s Vivian Yeung, executive vice president, chief digital & technology officer, had an opportunity to speak with the media about the bank’s role at Chabot.

“Space travel is a big dream of so many youth. Even big kids, like us adults, continue to be fascinated by it. Visitors to Studio 1 will, hopefully, carry that excitement with them into the future,” Hughes said.
