What does a scientist really look like?

Coming soon to break through the barrier of long-held depictions of people in STEM careers is our new IF/THEN Exhibit! The Science Zone has been awarded a mini grant by the ASTC (Association of Science and Technology Centers) to showcase women and minorities in STEM and their accomplishments!

Our new exhibit will highlight the Science Zone’s commitment to gender equity through larger-than-life portraits and biographies of women in different STEM fields in both English and Spanish. Once you’ve explored the diversity of STEM careers and the women in them, it will be time to interact with our STEM Career Discovery Quest to find out what STEM career matches your personal interests!

Ready to hear what they have to say? These remarkable IF/THEN ambassadors are ready to tell you. Watch videos of these women in action and try it yourself by taking part in our periodic guided hands-on STEM activities! Learn about forces of fun, extracting strawberry DNA, polymer bouncy balls, lava lamp reactions, and more! We hope you join us in supporting women in STEM. “IF we support a woman in STEM, THEN she can change the world.”
