Collaboration with the Tech Museum
The Tech Museum of Innovation showcases the technologies, innovations, and accomplishments unique to Silicon valley. Specifically, the Museum strives to promote scientific literacy and lifelong learning; to motivate the general public, families, educators, and students to explore technologies and their underlying sciences; to illuminate the interdependence of science, technology, and the human condition; and to provide a compelling and dynamic environment that encourages exploration, discovery, and learning.
The goal of the CPIMA/Tech Museum interaction was to promote science and technology in the local communities. To help accomplish this, CPIMA funded a Scientist-in-Residence at The Tech (Catherine Hoffmann). This person worked on the van project and participated in other community outreach activities sponsored by The Tech.
