It is hard to believe, but the Discovery Center of Springfield recently turned 20.  From a small seed, the children’s science museum has grown a plant that enriches the lives of residents of the entire region.  This week on STEM Spots, Rob Blevins, the Executive Director, stops by to chat.  We talk about the why, the motivation, the plans for the future and the building of local partnerships into relationships.

From 2010-2018, he was the head of the Department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science at Missouri State University. His research interests lie at the intersection of experimental condensed-matter physics and astrophysics, while his educational efforts have focused on outreach to the K-12 school system. Most of all, he believes in curiosity-driven learning in the sciences and all other fields.
