When we are not roofing Michigan Science Center, we also like to take our children there. Of course, roofing Michigan Science Center is our top priority, but there are also a lot of things to do other than working. The goal of the Michigan Science Center is to get people of all ages interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) so they can learn about, play with, and appreciate these subjects in a creative, dynamic learning environment. That’s just one of the reasons Detroit Roofers is proud to have a reputation for good work at roofing Michigan Science Center.
The Michigan Science Center (MiSci) is a science museum in Detroit, Michigan, that is part of the Smithsonian Institution. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, MiSci depends on the support of its members, donors, sponsors, and community partners. The Michigan Science Center is a community STEM hub that serves the whole state through virtual and traveling science programs. It has more than 220 hands-on activities, live stage shows, pop-up pocket demonstrations, and distance-learning programs.
The Michigan Science Center has the IMAX Dome Theater, the Dassault Systèmes Planetarium, the Toyota Engineering 4D Theater, the DTE Energy Sparks Theater, the Chrysler Science Stage, an 8,700-square-foot Science Hall for traveling exhibits, exhibit galleries that focus on space, life, and physical science, the United States Steel Fun Factory, an exhibit gallery just for little scientists, and more.
The Detroit Science Center was started in 1970 by Dexter Ferry, a businessman and philanthropist in the Detroit area. He is known for having the vision and dedication that led to the creation of the center. In 1978, the DSC moved to its Midtown, Detroit, building, which was designed by Master Architect William Henry Kessler of William Kessler Associates in Detroit. The building is in the midtown cultural center, next to the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.
The center was closed for a short time in the early 1990s because the State of Michigan stopped giving it money. It reopened in 1991. The Detroit Science Center was open until 1999 when it shut down for a $30 million renovation and expansion that tripled the amount of space for exhibits and added new theater and performance spaces. Neumann/Smith Architecture finished the 67,600-square-foot addition (6,280 m2) and the 51,000-square-foot renovation. The Detroit Science Center had a grand reopening party in July 2001, and it has continued to grow since then. In December 2001, it added a new Digital Dome Planetarium, and in 2008, it added a 4D Toyota Engineering Theater.
In April 2008, the Detroit Science Center started another expansion of 80,000 square feet with the help of the Thompson Educational Foundation. This was to make room for the University Prep Science & Math Middle School, a new college-preparatory charter school that will be located on its downtown campus. The school building has classrooms, a gym with locker rooms, a food service area, and offices. The school and the Detroit Science Center share conference space and the lobby. GunnLevine Architects and DeMaria Building Company, both from Detroit, worked together to finish the new addition.
The Detroit Science Center closed on September 26, 2011, because it didn’t have enough money. At the Detroit Children’s Museum, a number of planned events, programs, and trips were either put off or moved to a different time. (It’s ironic, but the Detroit Children’s Museum closed in December 2011 because of money problems. It reopened in February 2012, but only for Detroit Public School students. It had nothing to do with the Detroit Science Center.)
Local Detroit news reports from September 7, 2012, said that a new group called the Michigan Science Center would open and run the building. A spokesperson said that funding had been “significant” over the past year, but did not give any numbers. The Michigan Science Center’s board of directors met for the first time on September 10, 2012. On December 26, 2012, the Michigan Science Center opened to the public.
