About Us


Through our mission and vision, CNSE CMOST strives to engage the community to help co-create the museum experience, while also providing unique STE(a)M learning experiences. We seek to collaborate with the community on exhibitions, programs, and events so that we can share the value of the museum with our members and visitors. This collaboration is evidenced through our Great Leap Forward, a shared-vision initiative that seeks to create our new museum in Your vision. Your engagement helps us ensure that our museum honors the intellectual, creative, and social interests of the entire community. So please, explore our museum, explore our website, and share your vision with us!

Mission:

The operation of the museum as part of the Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) supports CMOST's mission to "instill a sense of wonder and discovery in young minds, inspiring a lifelong exploration of science and technology," and is complementary to CNSE's mission to provide pioneering nanotechnology education and prepare New York's future workforce with a comprehensive education of the highest quality.

Vision:

To be recognized as a world class science center, inspiring students of all ages to explore, discover, and imagine their world.
