Members of TAC will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with senior Museum staff as they give feedback on a wide range of Museum content and discuss the museum’s future.

MSI provides engaging and interactive experiences for youth, and people of all ages, in science and science-related disciplines. TAC is your opportunity to help make our vision to inspire and motivate visitors in the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine come true.
