Congratulations Museum of Science!

Congratulations Museum of Science!


The Museum of Science is an educational
and cultural gem in our city. It has inspired generations of
Bostonians to follow their curiosity.>>The Boston Museum of Science inspired
my love of learning about science, which I’ve carried with
me throughout my life. The education I got at
the museum was the reason why I went on to study engineering in college. And I’ve been glad to
support the museum and help it give more young students the
experiences and opportunities that I had.>>I think science centers have been
very good at communicating science, but perhaps not so
good at the technology and engineering. So I think what Yannis and the team have
done have really reinforced the importance of technology and engineering. And actually what’s been achieved
in Boston has had implications, really positive implications and an impact
throughout much of the rest of the world.>>I love the Museum of Science. I have wonderful memories of visits
with my mom when I was a kid. I was sort of a geek, but we had no advanced technology back then,
so I am extremely thankful for your advocacy for engineering and
computer science education. That has helped so
many students across the country, as well as here in Massachusetts,
prepare for their futures. Thank you for all of your hard work.>>Hi to our friends in Boston. From Amsterdam, we would like to
congratulate you with 15 years of investing in children by teaching them how
important engineering is in their lives.>>So I would like really to congratulate
the Boston Museum of Science for introducing Engineering is
Elementary to the world.>>Not only have we created curriculum
materials that thousands of teachers and millions of teachers across
the country have used. But we’ve really shifted science
education from merely science and what students know about science,
to what they can do with what they know, to solve real problems through
the engineering design process. [FOREIGN]>>Congratulations to Yannis and the National Center for Technological
Literacy at the Museum of Science for 15 years of advancing
technological literacy.>>I’m so pleased to congratulate
the National Center for Technological Literacy at
the Museum of Science. Your advocacy efforts
are clearly paying off.>>For 15 years, The National Center for Technological Literacy has inspired and
delighted America’s students and opened their minds to the wonders of
engineering and computer science.>>We’re so proud of the great work
that you’re doing as co-chairman of the STEM Caucus,
STEM Education here in Congress. Believe so passionately in
the work that you are doing.>>I am really fortunate to have
been a part of such a groundbreaking organization, and also one of
the most incredible STEM initiatives that have ever been created to move
the needle for kids across the country.>>I was later the president of
the chief state school officers. And saw other states adopt our curriculum,
so it’s now a national model. In fact, it’s been 15 years, so
congratulations to Yannis on 15 years of the National Center for Technological
Literacy here at the Museum of Science.>>[FOREIGN]
>>Congratulations to President Yannis Miaoulis and
the rest of the NCTL team and the wonderful Museum of Science for making
Massachusetts first in the nation again. I’m excited to hear about your new
preschool and kindergarten efforts. Starting early is essential for shattering
cultural norms and helping girls and underrepresented minorities
succeed in STEM fields.>>To promote, push the engineering, I would say matters vis-a-vis
the young generation is absolutely essential, and it’s true
of youth in the United States, but it’s even more true in country
like France or even Europe.>>For the last 15 years, you’ve really
opened up the hearts and minds of children relative to science study, and I will
tell you, you’ve done great work, and we hope that you continue doing it for
the foreseeable future. STEM needs more diversity
in its workforce.>>Your efforts are transforming
the way that young students, especially young girls, envision careers
in computer science and engineering. So my granddaughter and I especially liked the Pixar exhibit,
we had so much fun with it. That was great work.>>So while we’re not doing enough in
Congress to advance basic facts and understanding of science and
technology and the impact that they have on our world and
our lives every single day, you are doing that essential work for
our youth back home.>>Together, we are focused on supporting
and engaging more young diverse students to consider careers in technology and
engineering.>>On behalf of the city, congratulations on 15 years of
excellence in engineering education.>>Your work will make and
has made this world a healthier and safer place for everyone. Thank you for all of your fantastic work.
