The Portal to STEM

It was a pleasure to welcome our guests on Monday, May 22 to experience the Museum of Science as The Portal to STEM education. Our Blue Wing was abuzz with activity as our education staff demonstrated some of the many ways the Museum has invested in getting students excited about science, technology, engineering, and math!

Special thanks to Dr. Roni Ellington for her memorable and engaging presentation, The Future of STEM Education, and to all of the educators, STEM role models, and Museum supporters who joined us for an inspirational evening.


So... What Would You Do with 100,000 Square Feet?

Over dessert you let us know what YOU would do with 100,000 square feet of Museum space. Here were some of your answers:

"Amusement Park Design! Maybe put the correct pieces together to build a roller coaster."

"Create a mini-ecosystem with visible soil so people can observe what is happening underground."

"Trampoline room to teach about gravity!"

"Giant building blocks to build and play on construction themes"
