On Tuesday, August 6, Orlando Science Center welcomed Dr. Ioannis Miaoulis, director of the Museum of Science, Boston. Dr. Miaoulis is a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) advocate and has testified on the importance of K-12 engineering education in 2009 before the U.S. House of Representatives Research & Science Education Subcommittee and in 2010 before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee.

Dr. Miaoulis spoke about STEM education and how the current school curriculum focuses very little on how our human-made world is made. He also discussed major initiatives to promote technological literacy to children in front of an audience of elected officials, educators and community influencers.
