Together, we can forge a path forward and continue to serve our region by igniting curiosity and fueling a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us. Your support makes a galactic difference!

  • Break down barriers by empowering and encouraging girls and women in STEM
  • Ensure new, touch-free exhibitions like King Tut, open now, and Titanic, coming this winter
