    Strategic Initiatives

    CENTER FOR INNOVATION

    Our largest hall is being redesigned to inspire the

    next generation of creative problem solvers. We’ll present

    community challenges and provide tools for diverse

    learners to collaboratively design solutions.

    8,930 STUDENTS took a deeper dive into

    science in one of OMSI’s 3 labs in the hall.

    EARLY CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES

    OMSI has long fostered play to nurture the scientist

    in every child. Now, we’re expanding

    early learning experiences and sharing research on brain development with

    caregivers and educators across the region. 1,168 STUDENTS

    attended a session in the Discovery Lab.

    SPACE SCIENCE

    We all look at the same night sky—Western scientists,

    indigenous storytellers, and children everywhere. While we see the same stars, we learn so much more when

    viewing them through someone else’s eyes.

    124,953 VISITORS explored the cosmos

    in our newly upgraded planetarium.

    REGIONAL OUTREACH

    OMSI educators pack up the best of the museum and take it on the road, reaching every

    county in Oregon and six states in the region. Science

    happens everywhere.

    99,516 STUDENTS experienced OMSI

    in their classrooms.

    Now beginning the fourth year of our five-year campaign, we’ve raised over $4 million thanks to generous supporters like you!

    We are investing in areas that will elevate the guest experience, expand our impact, and break down barriers to access.

  • My daughter would not stop talking about her OMSI day (we do not get this kind of enthusiasm after days at school). We’ve had to make her pause in explaining what she did so she’d eat some dinner. She loved the class. The details about physics and rocketry were just enough to be informative and engaging for a 7-year-old.

    January 2019

    In partnership with leading companies and educational institutions, OMSI is redesigning our largest exhibit hall to inspire the next generation of creative problem solvers. The Center for Innovation will be a place for learners from all backgrounds to use tools to collaboratively design, make, and test sustainable solutions to community challenges, from emergency preparedness to health. OMSI will present challenges

    that are meaningful to visitors, illustrating how engineering, technology, and design can be used to improve our daily lives.

    The Center’s redesign will attract students who have been traditionally underrepresented in science careers and encourage them to see themselves as scientists and pursue related careers with guidance from industry mentors. Early work has been completed: a new entryway

    that reveals the historic brick of the original building, the Welcome Wall featuring a vast network of LEDs that stream data, graphics, and animations to inspire wonder and curiosity and showcase partnerships and special events, and the Greg Chaillé Curium, a space dedicated to 4–8-year-old design thinkers.

    CENTER FOR INNOVATION IS WORKING TOGETHER

  • By helping kids explore science outside of the classroom, our partnership with OMSI lays groundwork for the next generation of scientists and engineers. As an energy company focused on advancing the next hundred years of innovation, those inquisitive and highly-educated professionals are our future employees. They are the experts who will help us discover new and better ways to power our world.

    The Center for Innovation will feature companies and partnerships that look for innovative approaches for solving community problems. In Winter 2018, Pacific Power and OMSI began working collaboratively to test a new hands-on exhibit that challenges visitors to design and make generators to help a community that is experiencing a disruption in power. The exhibit uses evidence-based strategies to engage girls and minority

    youth, such as a storyline that invites youth to solve the challenges because they want to help people. It showcases Pacific Power’s work in the Pacific Northwest and highlights the company as a regional STEM employer. OMSI and Pacific Power’s vision for the future involves partners working together to help ignite an education transformation and engage broad audiences of diverse learners.

    OMSI plans to work with other community-minded regional companies to create real-world challenges for our visitors to tackle. We strive to be a trailhead, pointing learners to opportunities that will deepen their knowledge and tapping into local expertise in the process.

  • I had a teacher once who told me that women did not have the temperament for math and science. I didn’t mind proving him wrong. I am where I am because I love my job, I’m committed to building and maintaining a safe and resilient water system, and I have a personal touch that is not necessarily common with my generation of engineers.

    March 2019

    This past year, OMSI completed a five-year research project funded by the National Science Foundation, Designing Our World: A Community Envisioning Girls as Engineers. The project centered on science, technology, engineering, and math-equity, and addressed the need for more youth, especially those traditionally underrepresented in the field, to pursue engineering careers. OMSI researchers found that using a compelling

    storyline that illuminates the social, personally relevant, and altruistic nature of science and engineering creates an environment that encourages diverse youth to solve problems. In January 2018, OMSI shared our learnings with educators from across the region at a two-day workshop. Engineers from LAM Research highlighted ways their jobs are altruistic,
