Education and Public Engagement Programs
To help achieve our vision, the Museum is taking a leadership role in improving science education. Four strategies are driving our current and future education programs.
Our new Center for the Advancement of Science Education supports learning in the classroom, in our communities and here in the Museum. By collaborating with some of the best minds and institutions focused on science and education, the Museum of Science and Industry has become a laboratory for the development of better science teaching methods and programs. We are also a proving ground, thoroughly analyzing and evaluating our programs and implementing the best ideas. With your support, the Museum will expand the Center for the Advancement of Science Education—a world-class center for interactive learning that develops innovative programs for communities, teachers and students.
Give a gift today to inspire the inventors, innovators and scientists of tomorrow.
