Lisa came to MOSI for a third-grade school field trip. It was her first experience being a “scientist”. Over the years, she returned to MOSI with her family and attended multiple school break and summer camps. Last year, she graduated high school and is now a college freshman pursuing an engineering degree. All because of a third-grade school trip to MOSI!

The Museum of Science and Industry - MOSI - is an essential community education resource. As a supporter of MOSI and caring member of your community, you clearly understand and appreciate the value of interactive science experiences that have allowed children like Lisa, families and life-long learners to gather for creative conversations, inspired learning and informed action since MOSI opened in 1962.

MOSI has always ensured opportunities for discovery and connection through unique hands-on education programs both at the Museum in North Tampa as well as dozens of local schools and organizations. The challenges of 2020 catalyzed MOSI’s passion and empowered our scientists, educators, and artists to innovate and safely deliver
incredible virtual experiences.

In 2021 and beyond, with your support as a donor and partner, MOSI will produce displays, exhibits, demonstrations and workshops to activate imagination, stimulate curiosity and develop inquiring minds. I personally invite you to reflect on the impact your philanthropic contribution can have on evidence-based science education. Make your annual gift today.

Invest in MOSI now so together we can build a regional ecosystem in which science, technology and innovation are enjoyable and illuminating.

A legacy that keeps on giving

Dr. Gladys Kashdin was a champion of MOSI for nearly four decades. Believing that all science is creative, Gladys taught the people she came in contact with to look carefully and creatively at everyday wonders of nature. An early Board of Directors member, small of stature with indomitable spirit, she assisted with MOSI’s 1977 move to its current Fowler Avenue location and changing its name from the Hillsborough County Museum to the Museum of Science & Industry, as befitting a modern science center.

As the years passed, Gladys created a way to continue making an impact on the organization and community she loved, becoming a charter member of MOSI’s Infinity Circle of legacy and endowment donors. Her legacy and spirit live on through each and every guest who sets foot in the Welcome Center that bears her name and hosts many events and exhibits to inspire the next generation of STEAM professionals.
