Exploratorium News: Dennis Bartels Named Director

The current president of TERC is named Director of the Exploratorium effective this spring. Sherry says Bartels will be the first Director without a “hard sciences” background.

Culminating an international search, the Board of Directors of the Exploratorium has selected Dr. Dennis M. Bartels, a nationally known science education and policy expert, to be the new director of San Francisco’s acclaimed museum of science, art and human perception – an informal science education institution. Dr. Bartels will be joining the museum on May 1, 2006. Virginia Carollo Rubin has served as Acting Director since September 2005.
