Our Science and Technology Museums Program supports San Francisco Bay Area institutions that have the power to reach a large and diverse audience with rich scientific information. These institutions offer experiences that spur people to ask questions, think critically and try to understand how things around them work. In doing so, they activate the inner scientist in all of us and lay a foundation for broad appreciation of science in the world around us.
We support educational programming, design of exhibit experiences, teacher development and research and evaluation at these learning centers. We have made investments in such work at the California Academy of Sciences, Chabot Space and Science Center, Exploratorium, Lawrence Hall of Science and the Tech Museum of Innovation.
