Today, the extraordinary range of services and programs offered at MOSI reflects its 50 years of successful growth and maturation, and shows the unique synergy between the institution and community. As we continue to evolve, we realize that STEAM education is continuous, there are always new technological advancements to create, learn, and understand. Because of this, we have created new programs through our MOSI Technical Institute. MTI aims to integrate and expand educational programming that can result in certificate based programming and inclusion of portfolios of work for participants to take with them.
Our pilot program, beginning this fall, is referred to as STEAM E4; with the STEAM referring to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. The four E’s are: exposure, exploration, education and employment. Middle and high school students, as well as some adults, will come to MOSI for a variety of hands-on educational experiences designed to help them develop and hone skills and become workforce-ready. The project is a collaboration between MOSI and the Corporation to Develop Communities of Tampa (CDC), a nonprofit that focuses on alleviating poverty in east Tampa through programs such as job training, housing and rehabilitation.
Now is the time to expand to better support Florida’s growth, aspirations and needs, while playing a significant role in Tampa Bay’s strategic plan. Perhaps most importantly, it will have an impact on changing people’s lives for the better by igniting sparks of inspiration and engagement in both young people and young companies.
