Integrated Sciences

Chosen as our domain partner for the development of the science curriculum, San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception was founded in 1969 by physicist Frank Oppenheimer.  Oppenheimer viewed art and science as complementary ways of exploring the world and incorporated both into the Exploratorium from its earliest days.  In addition to the museum filled with hundreds of exhibits designed to help young and old become an active explorer, the Exploratorium maintains a website filled with over 25,000 pages of content and presents countless events and camps for kids, families and adults.  They also create professional development programs for educators, and are at the forefront of changing the way science is taught as well as understanding how people learn.  They share exhibits and expertise with museums and educators worldwide.
