Take on science like never before.
Become a member of the Teen Science Alliance to solve creative design challenges, get a backstage look at museum education, and build skills perfect for your next step.
How does it work?
Not your run-of-the-mill after school club, the Teen Science Alliance is a team of science-loving teens who take on real-world problems and work today to find creative, science-based solutions. With three sessions you can graduate up levels at your own pace while building skills to brag to future schools and employers about.
Tier 1: Thinkineers work in small teams to learn about the design process and solve everyday problems together.
Tier 2: The Science Squad volunteers on the museum floor facilitating hands-in science activities for visitors of all ages.
Tier 3: Apprentices build on their previous experiences in the museum, from volunteering on the museum floor, to mentoring incoming teens to working behind-the-scenes.
Thinkineers - Electronic Textiles
It's electric! It's fashion! Thinkineers learn about Design, Electricity, and Coding. Then, we apply the knowledge and skills gained to create wearable electronics.
