Artist In-Residence Program

Help put the "A" (Art) in STEM
Injecting the arts into STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) encourages students to think creatively and critically in traditional STEM subjects and encourages them to think outside the box. Art allows students to connect their learning in these critical areas together with art practices, elements, design principles, and standards to provide the whole pallet of learning at their disposal. STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry and innovation. The inclusion of arts provides students a more balanced and complete education that strengthens how students view and creatively solve problems. In addition, students learn to persist and take risks as they work through tasks preparing them to do the same in real life. STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st century!

Your gift will help fund MOSI's Artist In-Residence Program and the purchase of art and art supplies, so MOSI can continue to put the Art in STEM for our community.

Outreach Program

Science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) subjects are integral to our contemporary and future way of life. STEAM education helps students master the skills they need for bright futures and prepares them for the fastest growing occupational field in the world!

STEAM learning from an early age is vital to ensure students are equipped to meet the needs of the world they will inherit. There's never a better time than the present to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math in our community! Help get students excited about topics and technologies that will prepare them for today's toughest challenges and tomorrow's fastest-growing occupations.

The MOSI in Motion Science Lab brings the excitement of a STEAM field trip to schools. It immerses students in STEAM with workshops and assemblies that fit right into a school's daily schedule. The MOSI in Motion Lab includes interactive workshops and assemblies that support the schools curriculum and each field trip offers five sessions of hands-on, minds-on STEAM education! The cost includes all program materials and enthusiastic MOSI educators who are Lunsford certified.

Your donation will assist with the purchase of a field trip to a local elementary or middle school where students can experience the excitement of STEAM.
