Museum of Science and Industry

The Art of Science Learning’s Chicago Incubator for Innovation was hosted by the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI).

It’s the largest science center in the Western hemisphere (and one of the largest in the world), home to more than 35,000 artifacts and nearly 14 acres of exhibits designed to spark scientific inquiry and creativity.

Since opening our doors in 1933, we have welcomed more than 180 million guests from around the world. Our mission, to inspire the inventive genius in everyone by presenting captivating and compelling experiences that are real and educational, is realized through world-class exhibits such as: Science Storms, an exhibit revealing the science behind some of nature’s most powerful phenomena; YOU! The Experience, an exhibit that lets you explore what it means to live a vital, healthy life in the 21st century; and the U-505 Submarine, the only German U-boat in the United States.

Even bigger than our mission is our vision, which is to inspire and motivate our children to achieve their full potential in the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine. The Museum’s Center for the Advancement of Science Education (CASE) is continually developing and facilitating student Learning Labs, after-school science clubs, youth development programs, graduate-level science teacher courses and community outreach.
