The Children’s Museum of History, Science & Technology - serving Utica, Rome & the Mohawk Valley - is proud to announce that a student team project we are hosting has been named 1 of 20 finalists in a NASA nation-wide contest. Student teams were invited to design a water recycling system for future astronauts who will be living and working on the Moon. March 20th the student group and their mentor unveiled their exhibit and did a short presentation on their design. In a recent study, the National Academy of Sciences concluded “To be prepared for today's workforce, and able to understand the complex world in which we live, all Americans must have a solid education in science, mathematics, and technology”. This project will also be among this year’s Children’s Museum Science & Technology Fair exhibits, which features 15 student entries (30 students) from school districts throughout our area. Our museum helps stimulate young imaginations and strengthen families by promoting the importance of science, technology and cultural understanding through our exhibits, activities and programs. "Marlene. Congratulations to the Museum on the exciting report that a student team you are hosting has been named by NASA a finalist in the agency’s nation-wide contest.... deserves widespread attention. I continue to marvel at how much you and the Museum team do with limited resources. Keep up the great work which inspires young people to experience the awe and unlimited possibilities which derive from a personal and a national investment in history, science and technology. On the history part, we have to learn from the past so we can be prepared for the future. And science and technology? Wonderful career opportunities for young people and potential solutions to the problems and challenges we face on so many fronts. Wish I were going to be back home for the big event. Nevertheless, I’ll be thinking about the Museum, the fond personal memories of my involvement, and excitement of the unlimited potential it offers for the area, the people it serves and so many worthy objectives. As NASA is prone to say, Failure is not an option!” - Sherwood Boehlert, M.C. (Ret.) U.S. House of Representatives 1983-2007
