We are located on John R Street at Warren Avenue, between the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.Our June 16h Art, Architecture, and STEM Tour of the Detroit Public Library was excellent. Along with an amazing tour of the library, we had a special treat waiting for us when we entered the Burton Collection room: an up close viewing of an anatomy book from the 13th century and George Washington’s hand written diary. For those of you that braved our After Dark 21+ event, thank you. Your participation helped move us closer to regular adult evening events at the science center.

Your support, participation, and feedback have been awesome. So awesome in fact, that I have been asked to create an affinity group. If you have suggestions for a name for our new yet-to-be-named affinity group, you can CLICK HERE and submit up to (3) suggestions or send your suggestion(s) to me in a reply to this email.

 Following are dates you may want to make a note of. Details & registration for July 14 & August 3 will be available next week.

Participation has grown to the point that we now have more people on our waitlist than actual participants on the tours. To better accommodate our growing group, we will soon be hosting the following events at the Michigan Science Center: a speaker series, ‘adult’s only’ late afternoon & evening movies, family nights, special planetarium shows, and more. We will continue to coordinate and offer STEM tours.
