Young learners who are excited and engaged can transform the world. They take risks, they experiment, and they excel. For the past three years, the Children’s Museum has embarked on an ambitious Young Makers project to inspire the youngest learners to love science and math. 

We are delighted to welcome Microsoft President & CLO, Brad Smith, a key leader behind the creation of Washington STEM, an organization devoted to advancing innovation in science and math education. Brad will speak about the importance of STEM learning to Washington's economy and to the future of children everywhere.
