Aramco Americas’ commitment to Detroit began earlier this year with a Michigan Science Center partnership providing every Detroit Public School Community District 9th grader with energy education, including a visit to MiSci. Aramco now continues its support providing all guests with free general admission to the Summer of Science. Additional support for the Summer of Science has been provided by the William J. Nicholson Foundation.

“We are pleased to continue our support for the Michigan Science Center and the excellent work it does in science, technology, engineering and math education in Detroit,” said Mohammad Alshammari, president & CEO, Aramco Americas. “The Michigan Science Center is a regional STEM hub and making available a visit to the Center for more Detroit area families was a natural outgrowth of Aramco’s commitment to education.”

“We can’t wait to welcome guests back to MiSci! We’ve got fantastic new demonstrations and stage shows planned. With the support of Aramco Americas, MiSci will ensure it’s accessible to all,” said Michigan Science Center President/CEO Christian Greer. “We’ve also instituted additional safety and sanitation procedures in accordance with all new Michigan and CDC guidelines.”

David Cleary, Senior Research Scientist and Head of the Aramco Research Center-Detroit, located in the suburb of Novi, was on hand to talk about his exciting work in science as an engineer developing new cleaner and efficient engines and fuels.

According to Paul Andrews, Chief Development Officer, MiSci, preregistration for opening day sold out to its maximum capacity of 500 following health safety guidelines. For many families it was the first special activity they have enjoyed outside the house since March, he said.
