Play Matters.

Tomorrow’s Solvers are being shaped today and their potential can be positively influenced by a playground in their immediate community.

Goal Met: $124,620

Playground Build Date: June 25, 2021

Play is vital to creativity, learning readiness, team work and problem solving--all 21st century skills needed to solve the world’s pressing challenges of the future. Yet play is disappearing at home, in schools and in communities, disproportionately affecting children living in poverty.

KABOOM-2KaBOOM! ( is the national non-profit that works to ensure every kid and all communities have equitable access to quality, imaginative playspaces. Battelle is proud to support the mission of KABOOM!

Our goal was to raise funds to build a playground in the Portland area as part of the 2021 Combined Conference.

We are happy to announce that the playground build will still be moving forward as planned in a local Portland community and the playground will be built on June 25, 2021.

We hope to share photos and video of the completed build through Battelle’s social media channels when complete.

Our sincere thanks to those individual contributors seen below, as well as Outstanding Corporate contributor, REGENESIS, that assisted in making this build possible.
