2. Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Lab Transforming into Global Science Center

Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe (TSCW) was awarded the Save America’s Treasures (SAT)
grant of $500,000 from the National Parks Service and National Endowment of the Arts that will be used
to preserve the laboratory of inventor Nikola Tesla and restore it into a museum and global science center.
The $500,000 in funds is critical to ensure the exterior stabilization and restoration of the circa 1901 laboratory
building at Wardenclyffe. The structure is an international landmark with historic significance as the only surviving laboratory of science visionary Nikola Tesla; it is recognized as one of the key sites in global
technology history for its part in the science, aerospace, telecommunications, and research hub that
emerged in the Long Island / New York corridor. Mr. Tesla immigrated to America’s shores and made world-altering discoveries right here in New York. Tesla Science Center is working each day to educate the public and preserve Tesla’s legacy, and these much-needed federal funds will help fulfil that mission.”
