The Exploratorium

Tuesday, May 3rd, 12:00-1:30pm PST, Virtual

The Exploratorium is a global leader in STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) outside of the formal school system. In 2011 they were given the National Science Board Public Service Science Award for their contributions to public understanding of science and engineering, one of the most prestigious national honors in science given to an organization, short of a Presidential Medal. The Exploratorium has a museum facility on San Francisco’s waterfront, which (prior to the pandemic) attracted more than 800,000 visitors a year with over 600 interactive exhibits. Beyond the museum floor, they are a leader in science teacher professional development in the state of California, and they partner with museums around the world to bring Exploratorium-like exhibitions, museums, and galleries to international audiences. One of their top priorities is to develop a clear digital strategy, with a focus on options that can help increase contribution to their bottom line. How do they identify business model options that could be viable, given their strengths and capabilities ? (Digital transformation)
