Annual Report 2007

Our Mission

The mission of the Museum of Science is to stimulate interest
in and further understanding of science and technology and
their importance for individuals and society.

To accomplish this educational mission, the staff,


volunteers, overseers, and trustees of the Museum are
dedicated to attracting the broadest possible spectrum of
participants and involving them in activities, exhibits, and
programs which will:

• encourage curiosity, questioning, and exploration

• inform and educate

• enhance a sense of personal achievement in learning

• respect individual interests, backgrounds, and abilities

• promote lifelong learning and informed and active citizenship

All this is offered in the spirit that learning is exciting and fun at
the Museum of Science.

Museum of Science Science Park Boston, MA 02114-1099 617-723-2500 mos.org


Often the best part of extraordinary achievements is the fascinating story about a vision
realized. This report tells such a story about the Museum of Science as it becomes the
science and technology center of the 21st century. Major progress toward achieving our
strategic vision made fiscal year 2007 one of the most exciting in our history.

Audiences responded enthusiastically to the Museum’s life science offerings,


illustrating the institution’s sensitivity to the topics that visitors want to explore. The
temporary exhibition, Body Worlds 2: The Anatomical Exhibition of Real Human
Bodies, produced five of the ten busiest days in Museum history. Meanwhile, a generous
grant from The Catalyst Institute set in motion development of the Hall of Human Life,
a state-of-the-art exhibit on human biology.

Engineering and technology education produced dramatic results, too. The National
Center for Technological Literacy® (NCTL®) entered two national textbook publishing
partnerships and is active in 39 states. And we recognized our responsibility to deal
with technology’s impact on the environment: we declared our goal to be leaders in
applying science and technology responsibly by instituting a sustainability policy to
1
minimize our impact on natural resources.

Thanks to engineering innovator Bernard Gordon and his wife Sophia, we began
developing a new engineering exhibit and constructed the Sophia and Bernard M.
Gordon Wing, NCTL’s new headquarters. Their gift—the largest in Museum history—
extended to the Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, which was rededicated in
a warm celebration.

Other philanthropists are recognizing the Museum’s value: the Annual Fund is at its
highest level ever, as is endowment—which exceeded $100 million for the first time.
Memberships surpassed 51,000, a record high. All told, the Museum enjoyed its most
financially successful year in history, including the reversal of a five-year decline in

In the midst of these remarkable achievements was a solemn time as we lost founding
director Bradford Washburn, who transformed this Museum into a beloved institution.
We honored his memory with Colossal, an exhibition of his large-format photographs,
and the establishment of the Bradford and Barbara Washburn Discovery Fund. We

As global citizens we must reckon with our potentially devastating impact on

the environment. Earth’s ability to support life relies on citizens making sound

decisions about how we use technologies. NCTL enhances people’s knowledge of

technology nationwide by introducing engineering as a school discipline and by

presenting technology education in museums as being equal to science education.

The Museum’s approach for realizing its vision for informal technology education

is guided by six major themes: What is technology? What’s going on in technology

today? How are technologies developed? How can I use technologies to do useful

and creative things? How do technology, the environment, and society affect each

other? How can we make good decisions about using technologies? As our world

transforms, the Museum faces the challenge to become a more dynamic community

Face-to-face with Science and Technology
An active participant in civic life, the Museum of Science is a center for public conversations about science
and technology in individual and collective experience. Forums and lectures bring audiences face-to-face
with current science and technology issues. Are our children spending too much time with computers? How do
developments in nanotechnology affect privacy and security? What’s your preferred method of transportation—and
at what cost to the environment? In the past year, forums addressed questions like these to illustrate our
complex relationship with technology. Meanwhile, ongoing adult-themed lectures feature noted scientists
and writers with unique viewpoints on science and technology.
