Partnerships

The Museum is committed to delivering high-quality learning opportunities about real science. To deliver these experiences, we partner with the many excellent schools, universities, industries and other museums in our community, as well as with national and international partners. These partnerships allow us to work with leading experts in many different fields, from health and medicine to the environment to astrophysics and beyond, to bring our visitors the most exciting science stories and the latest in technology and research. Our partners also participate in Career Days and provide internships for students in our Youth Development Programs, helping the Museum to connect people with jobs and professional science career paths.
