Science on a Sphere Fund

The Museum’s Science on a Sphere installation will help shape the data scientists of tomorrow. Using the Sphere as a laboratory, MSU students will author original, compelling data visualizations stories about science and society. Students will interpret and augment existing datasets provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association and digitally “publish” their new three-dimensional projects, to be viewed at over 160 SOS systems around the world.

SOS provides unique opportunities for students and faculty in natural and social sciences, humanities and the arts to create together new ways of understanding and visualizing human networks and their global impacts through hands-on, interactive science, culture, and arts-based programs and demonstrations.

Give to the MSU Museum and help create the data scientists of tomorrow.

Your gift to the Science on a Sphere Fund will provide one MSU student with an internship opportunity with the MSU Museum. They will be trained to engage visitors in active hands-on learning programs. Through mentorship with museum professionals, this student will have the opportunity to develop and participate in innovative educational programs.
