We're bringing a children's museum to Macomb County
There is an alarming rate of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics)-related job openings that are not being filled in Macomb County. Students are losing interest in the STEM field due to lack of exposure and preparation, especially in Science and Engineering. By providing children with an interactive museum that provides mental and physical stimulation through science and innovation, we are giving kids the early building blocks they need for a successful career in a STEM-related field.
About the Macomb Children's Hands-On Museum
In 2010, in the midst of the recession, a group of motivated business leaders came together with the idea of bringing a children’s museum to Macomb County, Michigan. They saw an opportunity to provide children with a hands-on educational experience that would highlight science, technology, engineering and math – also known as STEM. With a large percentage of manufacturing and technical centers in the area, it made sense to pursue the idea of a STEM-related, hands on children’s museum, benefiting the county’s community, children and future workforce. In 2012, the museum’s board of directors was formed, and a successful “First 40” campaign was rolled out to fund the museum’s feasibility study. Now, some years later, the board has continued to raise money with fundraising events and hopes to bring the museum to the community within the near future.
