http://www.smv.org/
Mission Statement
The mission of the Science Museum of Virginia is to raise the public understanding of science and technology throughout the Commonwealth. With a variety of delivery vehicles, including operation of a large nationally acclaimed system of science centers at multiple locations across the Commonwealth, the SMV engages children, adults, and teachers of science in activities that promote science literacy and enhance public understanding. The Code of Virginia defines the purposes of the Science Museum in a clear statement that is as fresh today as it was when written more than 30 years ago: The purposes (§ 23-240) of The Science Museum of Virginia are: • to deepen our understanding of man and his environment; • to promote a knowledge of the scientific method and thus encourage objectivity in the everyday affairs of man; • to engage in instruction and research in the sciences in order to educate citizens of all ages in the concepts and principles of science and how these concepts and principles form the foundation upon which rests our technological society and its economy; • to use, subject to approval of the accredited educational affiliates concerned, Museum personnel in educational programs; • to motivate and stimulate young people to seek careers in science;• to encourage an understanding of the history of scientific endeavor; • to provide special facilities and collections for the study of Virginia's natural resources; and • to foster a love of nature and concern for its preservation. These purposes are hereby declared to be a matter of legislative determination. (Code 1950, § 9-65.2; 1970, c. 466; 1977, c. 597.)
