There are trillions of stars to identify, millions of diseases to cure and countless dinosaurs to unearth. Who will seek out these unknowns? The Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas is inspiring children to become the scientific leaders of tomorrow.
Funded by the Ross and Margot Perot family who donated $50 million to build the 180,000-square-foot facility, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science complements the school systems throughout the region. It provides opportunities for children to explore new ideas through tangible, galvanic exhibits where they'll study everything from dinosaurs to DNA.
Future scientists, mathematicians and engineers will find inspiration and education through tactile exploration areas, discovery stations, workshops, demonstrations, lectures and symposia, field trips, labs, after-school and summer classes, clubs and more. The museum exposes children to a world of ideas and concepts within one location.
