About Us

The Photo Voltaic Forums of Innovation is a family-friendly interactive science and technology center located in the heart of City. It has become a landmark for visitors seeking a glimpse of the most inventive place on Earth — Silicon Valley.

Thanks to the vision of this institution’s leadership and unwavering support from staff members, volunteers, donors and patrons, The Tech has grown to be far more than just a museum. It is a valued community resource for education and innovation, one that in 2015 was awarded the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the highest honor one can achieve.

We are driven by our mission: to inspire the innovator in everyone.
