The society including more South Floridians will be involved in environment, science, and technology through the Knight’s contribution with the initiation of this novel, advanced facility. The funds facilitate the students of the elementary and middle school of Greater Miami to visit the museum at least once. More visitors will benefit from participating in the science-based research activities within the campus.

The designation on the sophisticated Learning Center for students and community groups is a key recognition of Knight Foundation’s grant.

The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is a 250,000-sq.ft., complex, crafted by the most distinguished Grimshaw Architects. The Museum demonstrates the sustainability and ecological principles, obtaining energy from sun, water, and wind to underline the exhibits, thereby conserving resources.

The museum is designed in such a way that it was encased within an outdoor and indoor ‘living core’ of aquatic and terrestrial spaces. It features a full dome 3-D planetarium, a 600,000-gallon aquarium facility, innovative technology with modern classrooms, exhibition space, and cafes, and dynamic exhibits. This new Museum, supported by the Miami-Dade County and the City of Miami, along with its neighborhood, is all set to be an outstanding icon to promote science and technology, besides being a source of inspiration for the visitors. The new museum will be introduced on Feb. 24, 2012 and expected to be unveiled in the early 2015.
