INSPIRING YOUNG TALENT
As the UK’s most visited museum for school and educational groups, we play a vital role in informal learning and inspiring young people to engage with STEM. Using the power of STEM engagement, we can involve more diverse groups in science and innovation, which will create a fairer and more inclusive society.

Your support helps develop new learning initiatives for students and young people, expanding awareness of the skills needed in STEM careers.

CREATING NEW GALLERIES AND EXHIBITIONS
Each year our dedicated team of curators and researchers create new galleries and exhibitions to display incredible objects and the stories behind them. Using interactivity and immersive designs to house the nation’s scientific collection, we create ground-breaking spaces to engage our audiences with a range of business-relevant topics.

Your support helps create new galleries and blockbuster exhibitions, fuelling imagination and sparking wonder.

POWERING UNIQUE EVENTS
From family and adult festivals, to IMAX presentations and accessible programmes for audiences with special educational needs, our unique events programme is at the beating heart of engaging our audiences with STEM.

Your support helps present public events, films and workshops, bringing important issues to life in memorable ways.

CONNECTING WITH AUDIENCES ONLINE
The Science Museum Group has a vast online estate that in 2019 received over 10.9 million visits across our sites, with around 39% of visitors from outside the UK. Our traditional learning resources site welcomes thousands of users each month.

Your support helps engage millions of people globally through digital interventions and new online content, ensuring greater levels of accessibility to vital STEM subjects.

REACHING BEYOND THE MUSEUM’S WALLS
