The stars are not dim in the hearts and minds of those of us who were inspired by the true value of the Museum of Science and its planetarium.
The inspiration that the museum’s educators provided in that interactive setting provided me a career and a lifetime of engagement in the world of science and technology. In high school, I snuck into this science center and was so stimulated that I majored in aquatic ecology and became the education director of the Miami Museum of Science (1976-79). I continued my 37-year museum career at the Miami History Museum for seven years and at the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa — the largest museum in the southeast — for 27 years.
Good luck to the Frost Museum of Science. Its success will be far beyond the technology of the planetarium and exhibitions.
