DEARBORN, MI -- August 18, 2014: Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development and Dr. Tonya Matthews, president and CEO, Michigan Science Center, unveiled an all-new 2014 Transit Connect Wagon that will serve as the center’s traveling MiSci van. Donated by Ford Motor Company, the van will support the center’s traveling science program by allowing the museum to conduct hands-on research at schools, community centers and libraries in more than 25 communities across the state. Michigan Science Center aims to provide engaging, interactive exhibits that ignite passion for science, technology, engineering and math in Michigan’s youth. This summer’s program, the “Fizz, Bang, Traveling Science” tour, will give children the chance to build rockets and learn about chemical reactions. Ford supported the initial opening of Michigan Science Center in 2012, with a $400,000 commitment over three years.
