The Great Lakes Science Center opens a new permanent exhibit Saturday that celebrates the region's contributions to manufacturing technology.

Why it matters: Funded with a $2.25 million grant from JobsOhio — and sponsored by Sherwin-Williams — the Cleveland Creates gallery is meant to inspire the "next generation of innovators" to pursue STEM careers in Cleveland.

  • It continues the Science Center's focus on expanding access to STEM, as it already partners with CMSD on a robotics initiative to make STEM careers accessible to historically underserved communities.

Details: The gallery — included with the price of general admission — will feature interactive displays that showcase local STEM professionals and highlight technological advances in the fields of aeronautics, robotics, steel and chemistry developed in Northeast Ohio.

What they're saying: "This fun and engaging exhibit is a testament to the Science Center's commitment to bringing science, technology, engineering and math to life for the people of our community," Diana Strongosky, Sherwin-Williams senior vice president of global innovation, said in a statement.

If you go: The Science Center's winter hours are 10am-5pm Tuesday-Saturday and noon-5pm Sunday.
