Ford, along with other sponsors like DTE, General Motors and Toyota, will assist the science center in managing their budget of donations. After the unfortunate incident of closing the doors in 2011, the Michigan Science Center was given a second chance thanks to millions of dollars in philanthropic support from 25 different organizations in December of 2012.
Ford believes strongly in providing engagement and effective educational experiences, especially when it comes to science and technology. STEM education programs are going to continue to be a central focus for the Michigan Science Center, while trying to reach visitors outside of southeast Michigan. The Michigan Science Center is extremely grateful for the donation provided by Ford and their support not only to the science center, but to the local community.
The Michigan Science Center has seen about 384,000 people walk through their doors since the re-opening. This number includes special events, educational programs and facility rentals. The science center is looking at the donations as an opportunity to be able to reach out and encourage a greater interest in STEM education, create a unique experience for children and their families, and to help boost Detroit and Michigan's economies.
