Partner Highlight: Museum on the Move: Traveling Nano Exhibition to Reach a New Audience in Maryland
Nanoscience and technology was found in an unlikely location when Port Discovery Children's Museum partnered with The James and Anne Robinson Nature Center in Columbia, Maryland. Part of Port Discovery’s mission states that we “extend our impact by taking our programs community and state wide”. Museum on the Move, the museum’s newest outreach initiative, does just that. The Robinson Nature Center was chosen as the pilot location because of their existing relationship with the museum and unique venue. The Nano mini-exhibition has been displayed at countless science centers and children’s museums, but never a nature center. Port Discovery and Robinson were excited to bring a unique topic to the nature center.
