About the Academy of Science

Since 1856, when Dr. George Engelmann, James B. Eads and other prominent visionaries of the day formed the Academy of Science in St. Louis, it has been a leader in the advancement and integration of science and technology into contemporary society. From its rich history as a science museum (most recently at Oak Knoll Park as the Museum of Science and Natural History) to the realization of a longstanding goal by taking the lead in the development of a “well-equipped and suitable science center” for St. Louis, the Academy has always been able to focus its resources for maximum return.

Today, Academy resources are entirely mission focused, on expanded scientific outreach, education, resource sharing, and the recognition of scientific accomplishment. Academy partners include every scientific sector—academic, public, corporate and private—from a broad range of science, medicine, engineering and technology concerns.

For more than 10 years, the Academy initiative, Gateway to Science, St. Louis Region, has been facilitating interactions between providers of educational programming and community organizations by providing a website and information listing educational programs, resources, and learning opportunities in subjects relating to science, applied science, math, engineering, and technology.
