Many museums are developing experiences that connect history with STEM. But questions persist about the methods, intended goals, and success of these endeavors. Hear from four historical institutions, and add your own voice, as we discuss why STEM integration can be meaningful in history museums, as well as strategies for evaluation. Then, explore how each institution moved beyond a basic “history of science” model to more deeply connect STEM and history while maintaining the strength of their historic collections and programs.
