Museum of Science Presentation

I had the unique opportunity to visit the Museum of Science a few weeks ago for a special presentation. I visited the new and improved planetarium. In addition, I heard Ionnis Miaoulis (President and Director of the Museum) and Stephanie Wilson (NASA Astronaut)two leaders involved in fostering STEM education. You can see the their pictures below. The museums effort to foster STEM education in our schools is evident within our science curriculum, library, and teacher commitment to teaching the latest technology.
