Allan Adams is a theoretical physicist working at the intersection of fluid dynamics, quantum mechanics, and string theory. He is deeply committed to communicating the artistry of science to the public, for example by shooting underwater high-speed videos for the New England Aquarium’s 2013 public lecture series and ad campaign.

Daniel Davis and his group instill wonder through live presentations. His PhD research investigated the initiation of rocket-triggered lightning. His recent work includes minimizing stress on the Van de Graaff’s aging columns, and constructing the Museum’s two musical Tesla coils. 


Keith Ellenbogen’s work specializes in marine conservation and underwater environments. His imagery aims at evoking a connection between people and the planet. Keith is also passionate about how the intersection between art and science can showcase the beauty of nature and lead to insights about the world around us.

The Mission of the Museum of Science

The Museum's mission is to play a leading role in transforming the nation's relationship with science and technology. This role becomes ever more important as science and technology shape and reshape our lives and world, and it means we:

  • Promote active citizenship informed by the world of science and technology
  • Inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering
  • Encourage young people of all backgrounds to explore and develop their interests in understanding the natural and human-made world

To do this, we will continue to build our position as a leader in the world's museum community and use our educational perspective as an informal learning institution to help the formal pre K-12 education system.
