Birmingham, Alabama — Birmingham Science and Technology Museum, known as the birthplace of American science, is one of the best museums in the country, according to the Associated Press.
Birmingham Science & Technology Museum’s website lists the museum as the second-best museum in the nation for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.
The museum is the largest in the state, with a 1,300-square-foot space that houses the Birmingham Science Center, the museum’s flagship building.
It also hosts the Science &ing; Technology Festival, a national educational event that attracts more than 30,000 students to the city annually.
“Birmingham’s first science museum is among the best in the world,” said Jeff Pohl, president of the Birmingham-based Association for Science Education.
“Its educational value is well beyond its size.”
Pohl’s group has made its name organizing and organizing events that benefit the city’s STEM community.
The group organized the Alabama Science &s; Technology Fair in 2014 and the Birmingham Museum of Science Fair in 2018.
The Fair featured over 100 exhibitors and the Fair itself featured more than 70 exhibits.
“The Birmingham Science Festival is the most successful and successful annual STEM event in the U.S.,” Pohl said.
“We are proud to be a part of it.”
Birmingham Science Fair 2017 in Birmingham, AL — The Birmingham Science&Technology Fair, hosted by the Birmingham City Council, hosted more than 100 exhibits.

The Birmingham City Commission hosted a similar fair in 2017.
Birmingham City Schools has also held a Science &amtory Fair in the city for the past four years.
Pahl said Birmingham Science Education Foundation has partnered with local organizations and local governments to raise money for the Science and Technical Education Grant, which was awarded to the Birmingham Arts &; Technology Center to assist STEM education in the community.
“If you don’t have STEM education, then it doesn’t matter how big your city is,” Pohl explained.
“In this day and age, a lot of people don’t get to participate in the arts.
We want to make sure that the community does have a place to do science, and that they can do it safely, safely, safe.”
Birmingham Public Schools is one example of a school district that is partnering with the group.
The city has awarded $1 million in grant money to the Science Education Grant program, according.
The Science &ameSTEM Fair was the second biggest STEM event of the year for Birmingham Public School, according the AP.
The 2018 Science &amscience Fair in Birmingham attracted over 40,000 people.
Pichors organization also has held events in other cities including Boston, Pittsburgh, and Atlanta.
“Science &ing Technology is a great opportunity to teach STEM to kids in Birmingham and throughout Alabama,” Pichor said.
Poulter said he plans to continue to organize events in the coming years.
“When people think of STEM education they think about science education, but we also want to teach it to kids about how the brain works, how it’s connected to the rest of the body, how the world works, and how our bodies and our environment function,” Poulters said.
