Museum of Science and Industry

I absolutely love learning about cool things. MSI is full of exhibits where you can discover different things that real scientists, inventors or engineers get to work on! As you go through the Museum, you might notice that most of the featured scientists happen to be adults. But being a scientist is definitely not something only grown-ups can do. Anyone can be interested and curious and make neat things happen.

Take Kathryn, for example. At twelve, still years away from being able to drive on her own, she had decided to learn how to rebuild a car. With a plan to have it in good shape by the time she is old enough to drive, she has done it all – from tearing things apart to sanding and painting, even welding her future vehicle! So incredible. I think she's doing a great job showcasing what kids can accomplish, and it makes me proud to work at a museum that strives to encourage kids to get into science, technology, medicine and engineering!
