Cox Innovation Lab Opens at Goleta Boys & Girls Club

The Goleta United Boys & Girls Club took one step into the future with the exciting unveiling of the Cox Innovation Lab earlier this month. The STEAM-based program marks a new frontier in learning. Virtual reality and video games are not just for fun, they’re helping future generations experience learning like never before. 

Mayor Paula Perotte, Mayor Pro Tempore Kyle Richards, District 1 Councilmember Luz Reyes-Martín, District 2 Councilmember James Kyriaco (also a Boys and Girls Club alum) were joined at the special ribbon cutting by United Boys & Girls Club CEO Michael Baker, Club Board Chair Roger Aceves, and Kirsten McLaughlin, Vice President of the Santa Barbara Market Cox Communications. 

Most excited of all were the young club members who eagerly attended the event, filled with excitement at the opportunity to explore the brand-new innovation lab and equipment. Members of the Goleta United Boys & Girls Club will all be able to utilize the lab equipment including TVs, improved Wi-Fi, virtual reality goggles, video game systems such as PlayStations, and more.

Thank you Cox Communications for making an investment in Goleta’s youth!
