Last year, gifts empowered 480,000 visitors to enjoy dynamic Live Presentations that bring STEM to life every day.
Gifts to our Field Trip program provided 132,906 students the opportunity to experience the magic of the Museum on a field trip.
Thanks to the support of EIE®, more than 18 million students have been introduced to engineering across all 50 states and 20 countries.
“I support the Museum because it’s critically important that more people understand and trust science. We are making advancement in science every day, but that won’t help society if individuals don’t take advantage of this knowledge.”
Chris Bellon, Discoverer since 2012
