MIM’s new STEM Gallery explores the important connections between music and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through original video, interactive technology, and instruments from all over the globe, multiple displays within the gallery explore themes of sound creation, technological innovation, the human ear, hearing safety, and much more in a dedicated space.
While the STEM Gallery is an important part of guided field trips for students, it also allows self-guided groups and general museum guests to deepen their understanding of the connections between music and science.
The scientific and technical description of music as presented in the STEM room is outstanding.
