We Bring the Science to You

Would you like us to bring science to your community or public event?

Our STEM Response Unit and outreach team bring interactive, educational, and fun STEM-based activities to the FM area and beyond! We keep our eyes and ears open for public events opportunities. If you are organizing an event, or know of an event that would ignite curiosities, please contact us and tell us about the opportunity.

Words From Our Supporters

Carl-Martin N.

Director of Communications, UWC-USA
“Every local high school in the F-M area has an Alumni Hall of Fame that features lots of Andersons, Johnsons, and Olsens who have gone on to great things and have given back to our community in meaningful ways. In the not too distant future, the names on these walls will be decidedly more difficult for many of us to pronounce – and a science museum dedicated to breaking down barriers of race and ethnicity in particular can make that happen more quickly. This is one of the main reasons why I’m supportive of this effort. Please keep me informed about your progress.”

“I would love to help out where I can. I did my “master of architecture” thesis on this type of building and would love to be a part of the development!”

Just read a write-up about the proposed science museum! I agree – it’s long overdue. I look forward to hearing more about this and would be happy to participate (my 3 yr. old daughter would love this)…I am passionate about STEM and community involvement…I wish you all the best of luck on getting things moving.
