Discovery Museum Speaker Series

The Discovery Museum Speaker Series creates engaging conversations around creativity, learning, and the future of science education. We connect our community with leaders in the fields of science, technology, and education to discuss important topics that impact our children, our families, and our world. Join the conversation!
The speaker series is offered in collaboration with the MIT Club of Boston.
