STEM Center for Education and Career Development
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new STEM Center for Education and Career Development, a Museum initiative that seeks to prepare students for success by raising the level of STEM education, instruction and career interest and to create a science literate community by increasing awareness of and engagement in STEM.
To accomplish these goals, the STEM Center will offer a number of specialized opportunities to advance knowledge and engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
The goal of each of these programs is to provide firsthand experiences for youth to build self-confidence, sense of self, interpersonal communication and leaderships skills, and to inspire youth by cultivating and furthering an interest in STEM education and careers.
New this year are:
- Internships for students ages 14-16. Students will collaborate in teams to research
and produce a science show or community awareness project that will illuminate a
basic science principle or issue, see attached flyer.
- Two-year internships for high school juniors. Students will earn volunteer service
hours, college credit, learn how to build an APP and receive a stipend while
advancing their knowledge in STEM subjects, see attached flyer.
- Extended Learning Opportunities for 75 sixth grade ‘bubble’ students. Crystal Lake
Middle School and the Museum will offer Discovering Success: An Initiative to
Increase High School Graduation through STEM as part of the Community
Foundation of Broward ‘s School is Cool movement. Students will be immersed in
real-life STEM experiences at school and at the Museum, and family participation
and support will be encouraged in a variety of ways.

What is STEM? The simplest definition is what it stands for, which is science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
As always, we will offer spectacular films, traveling exhibits, labs, demos and outreach to support your curriculum. And two major areas will be renovated: the AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater will reopen in early October with a new giant screen, new luxury seats, new powerful sound system and the addition of a digital projector to complement our 15/70 film projector. Then in mid-December, our aviation exhibit hall will be completely renovated and will be renamed To Fly. An exciting new feature will be a 7D capsule theater offering a multi-sensory experience that will be free to students on school field trips.
