Help Us Be an Agent of Change!

The Museum of Science, Boston is a place of discovery, a resource for all ages to explore, families to engage, and the community to learn together. The Museum’s 190-year history is a story of growth driven by public curiosity, an expanding definition of science, rapid changes in technology, and a need to stay relevant in an ever-changing world. Since 2003, we have advocated for the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. We believe in our ability to convene and inspire, and to empower everyone to see themselves in science and STEM.

The past two years have brought into clear focus the need for a more science-engaged, and science-literate, society. The Museum is now proposing an ambitious new direction to open up to the community in both literal and figurative ways, with a singular goal: to inspire a lifelong love of science in everyone, to create a world where science belongs to each of us for the good of all of us. The Museum continues to lead the charge in support of STEM education on a local, regional, and national scale. We aim to create a society where everyone is able to harness the power of STEM confidence to move boldly into the century ahead.

By leading the way, the Museum can be central to building a fully participatory science community and to problem-solving centering on the community’s needs first and imagining action-oriented, inclusive solutions for the most exciting scientific challenges of our time.
