Anchored by the Museum’s nationally recognized Center for the Advancement of Science Education (CASE), Black Creativity reaches tens of thousands of students, their teachers and families in underserved Chicago neighborhoods each year with a wide range of targeted, culturally-relevant science education programming. The program has four main goals:
- Provide exposure for African-American youth to careers, educational pathways and other opportunities in science, technology, engineering and medicine.
- Highlight and recognize the contributions and activities of African-American youth in science, technology, engineering and medicine.
- Increase access to MSI and its resources to African-American students and families.
- Showcase African Americans and their contributions, past and current, to the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine.
