Frost Science Continues to Inspire
The museum canceled its 4th Annual Celebration of Science Presented by The Miller Family Foundation but confirmed partners and sponsors converted their gifts to support the museum’s ongoing programs and initiatives.
Shortly after welcoming its two millionth visitor, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Downtown Miami closed its doors in March for three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum was also forced to cancel its 4th Annual Celebration of Science Presented by The Miller Family Foundation, which was originally scheduled to take place on April 25, 2020. However, the event’s confirmed partners and sponsors were generous enough to convert their gifts to support the museum’s ongoing programs and initiatives which are vital to inspiring the next generation of scientists, innovators, changemakers and engineers in our community and beyond. In times like these, investment in science is more crucial than ever.

Frost Science continues to face unprecedented challenges from its three-month closure and the unrelenting financial strain due to the impacts of the ongoing pandemic. The museum worked tirelessly to safely reopen in June before any other museum and most other major cultural institutions. During the closure period, Frost Science quickly pivoted based on community needs and developed Frost Science@Home, a digital museum platform with free educational programming, contributed to global scientific research efforts to fight diseases such as COVID-19, and created virtual field trips, outreach and other educational offerings. The museum is now open but has continued to provide free programming for the public to learn and escape into science from home through its Virtual LIVE@Frost Science webinars and live Gulf Stream Aquarium webcam.
The museum is an important resource for the community and needs support now more than ever. Visit frostscience.org/donate to make a gift. Tomorrow’s 24-hour annual Give Miami Day event is also a great opportunity to support the museum and make a contribution. Visit givemiamiday.org/frostscience to make an impact and support science.
