Aramco is helping the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) bring back its popular Traveling Science Program with expanded geographic reach beyond the Metro Detroit area beginning June 1. 

Since 2012, MiSci has brought high-energy, hands-on, STEM experiences to libraries, community centers and schools across Michigan through its Traveling Science Program. The program was grounded in 2020 due to COVID-19. Following safety protocols, Michigan and CDC guidelines, this outdoor activity now returns.
“Aramco Americas is helping our team get back on the road this summer, providing inspirational, educational experiences to children and families across Michigan,” said Christian Greer, president and CEO of the Michigan Science Center. “It's important to find ways to inspire young people, and there is no better time to do that than during the summer season when children have time to play and explore the outdoors in Michigan's wonderful natural environment.”
Last summer, MiSci reopened its doors on July 10 with a celebratory “Summer of Science” with free general admission in partnership with Aramco.  This summer Aramco continues its commitment to STEM education and the community by bringing the program back online and with expanded availability as far as the state's Upper Peninsula.  
“We are pleased to continue our support for the Michigan Science Center and the important role it plays in education in the Detroit community,” said Nabeel I. AlAfaleg, president & CEO, Aramco Americas.  “As a company committed to technology, Aramco's support for MiSci is a way for us to help spark interest and excitement in science and innovation.”
The company is active in the Metro Detroit area with its Aramco Research Center-Detroit developing innovative transportation solutions and as a founding member of the ACI Center of Excellence for Nonmetallic Building Materials in Farmington Hills.
Unique to this year's program, the Aramco Traveling Science Program will address socially relevant STEM issues under the theme “Imagine Your Story - See Yourself in STEM.” MiSci's staff will encourage children to celebrate underrepresented people in STEM, such as women and people of color.
The Aramco Traveling Science Program expects to serve approximately 25,000 kindergarten to eighth-grade children primarily at outdoor locations—schools, libraries, summer child care and after-school programs, and other community groups.
