Science Centres have long been known for pyrotechnical demonstration shows, summer camps, and larger-than-life exhibits. But we are increasingly being recognized as key players in larger learning ecosystems that support STEM learners of all ages. I'll show ways that Science World (and other informal science education organizations) collaborate with more formal institutions like universities, K-12 education systems, and industry to bring STEM learning to a wide audience, particularly to groups that are traditionally underserved. Warning: this presentation may involve audience participation and rubber chickens.
