SMILE is a national partnership among science and technology centers, museums, community-based organizations, and out-of-school educators. We are dedicated to making science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) exciting and engaging for all learners. Our organizations are resource hubs for educational programs that involve people of all ages and backgrounds. Darrell Porcello and Sherry Hsi (Lawrence Hall of Science), Erin Van Rheenen (Exploratorium), Preeti Gupta (New York Hall of Science), Keith Braafladt (Science Museum of Minnesota), Margaret Glass (ASTC), and Cheryl McCallum (Children's Museum of Houston) are heading up the project.
