In July of 2020, the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology (SAMSAT) hit a new milestone by serving over 2,000 students online with FREE STEM Classes offered since March. Before COVID-19, live educators at SAMSAT taught students and adults in person through the SAMSAT Explore™ Tours , SAMSAT Explore-And-Do™and The Geekbus™ which brought STEM to schools' classrooms and local neighborhoods. The online courses became a way for SAMSAT to stay true to the mission of inspiring minds through STEM.
"While circumstances changed quickly, our team did not miss a beat to ensure we continued advancing our mission to inspire young people in our community through dynamic learning activities," said museum President and CEO Doug King. "In these last few months, our partnership with the Port team has demonstrated its resiliency and importance. Together, we developed innovative ways to keep our community engaged. in the process, we've kept young people excited about the technologies that are growing in their own backyard. Through our online learning platform, we've continued showing the students that they too can participate in those industries very soon as they focus on their studies."
