The Innovators

The Innovators are the Museum of Science’s community of young professionals who are united by their desire to expand their knowledge of science and technology in a social setting.

They enjoy a year-long program of exclusive social and networking activities with fellow young professionals that are geared around fresh technology, innovative science, and more.

Innovators also have an opportunity to engage with the Museum, through invitations to interactive events with Museum board members, staff and local leaders in innovation and technology.

The Innovators are the next generation of supporters and leaders at the Museum of Science.

Young Leadership Committee

The Innovators also have the opportunity to join the Museum’s Young Leadership Committee (YLC) after a year of Membership. Gain even more exclusive access, and have your voice heard as the Museum works to advance and reimagine its strong mission.

The reason to join the Innovators is it really brings that child out of the adult. If you’re interested in STEM, interested in science, or had great experiences at the Museum growing up, there’s so much waiting for you here as an adult. There’s lectures, volunteer opportunities, and wonderful events… things that you really didn’t know, or couldn’t even imagine were waiting for you when you were a kid.
