The Museum of Science and the Boston Red Sox have teamed up in a first-of-its-kind, multi-year partnership between two iconic Boston institutions. The goal? To bring baseball-inspired STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning opportunities to the more than 70,000 members of Red Sox Kid Nation, the team's club for fans 14 and under. Both organizations will also collaborate on family-friendly programs, activities, and events throughout the year!
In collaboration with the Red Sox, the Museum, a national leader in STEM education, has developed integrated baseball and science content for Wally & Tessie’s STEM Workbook, available later this season during home games at Fenway's Kid Nation booth and at Wally's Clubhouse, housed in the Champion's Club.
In addition to expanding and enhancing the workbooks, the Museum has developed a Red Sox-themed Design Challenge, our signature hands-on experience that introduces visitors to the engineering design process. Design Challenges, aimed at students grades four through ten and family groups, guide participants as they create, build, and test their prototypes to solve an engineering design problem.
Throughout the season, we will be teaming up with the Red Sox for special hands-on experiences inside and outside the Museum.
Join us on June 2 and June 3 for our second annual Red Sox Weekend! (link to event page) Try a Sox-themed Design Challenge where you can build and test prototypes to solve a problem. Put on a virtual reality headset and swing at a ball. Get your picture taken with Wally and Tessie and more!

According to Museum director and president Ioannis Miaoulis, this partnership with the Boston Red Sox will expand the Museum’s reach and inspire children of all ages and backgrounds to develop essential STEM skills. "This collaboration is a natural extension of our programs and exhibits, expanding our capacity to make science and engineering accessible to all. Together, the Museum of Science and the Red Sox will inspire kids to see themselves as STEM learners and push the boundaries of what’s possible."
