Director - Science Gallery Detroit
Science Gallery seeks to engage people, particularly 15-25 year olds, in connective, participative, and surprising ways. Science Gallery’s informal learning model is not about providing answers but about working with others to formulate big questions and spark new ways to answer them. Science Gallery also serves as a bridge between Detroit and the MSU campus, and through the international network, a bridge to a global community of creative problem solving. Science Gallery Detroit has created two summer exhibitions at pop up locations. With a permanent location scheduled to open in the fall 2020, Science Gallery is entering a new phase with a strong foundation for the vision of the new Director. This is an extraordinary opportunity to provide leadership to a highly regarded academic institution and serve as a global trailblazer through the unique collaboration and considerable potential of the growing Science Gallery Network.
