MiaSci Moms is a diverse group of moms who not only serve as ambassadors for the Museum but also take a look at the Museum from an insider perspective and help the Museum provide better programs, exhibits and events for its visitors. The group meets once a month for a different Museum experience, including Wildlife Encounters, a new Museum presentation and conversation with CEO Gillian Thomas, preparation and planning for the Moms Rock @ MiaSci Mother’s Day event and Moms Rock Photo Contest. The group also engages in an open dialogue to discuss each experience and, using that feedback, the Museum works to enhance the visitor experience.
