Schenectady, New York

miSci is an interactive science museum located in Schenectady, New York.  The museum’s focus is on presenting exhibitions and programs that celebrate science, inventions and technology – past, present and future. The many  unique interactive exhibitions and programs encourage visitors to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The museum includes gallery space that houses thousands of exhibit items, the Suits-Beuche Planetarium, and classrooms.

“Broughton Foundation funding permitted miSci to create a new interactive exhibit, Let’s Connect! The exhibit uses the history of communication technologies to illustrate STEM concepts for families and school children and allows miSci to highlight its amateur radio station and rich collection of radios.”
