Embracing Our Surroundings

Miami Worldcenter is proud to be part of a burgeoning area that has already benefitted from major public and private investments. We will be active members of our community, helping to continue its growth and prosperity.

Last month, we had the pleasure of attending Girl Power‘s 2nd Annual Day Party and contributing $5,000 towards their STEAM Summer Camp.

Girl Power is a nonprofit prevention and intervention social change program that promotes positive behavior, enhances social skills and improves academic performance in at-risk girls, ages 11-17. Established in 2000 by the World Literacy Crusade (WLC) of Florida – an international, non-profit, community literacy program – Girl Power encourages young girls to build confidence, competence and pride within themselves. 

Girl Power’s STEAM Summer Camp is a free, hands-on learning opportunity for middle school girls in Overtown with a special emphasis on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.  The six-week program takes an active role in shaping education by incorporating problem-solving, creativity, collaboration, presentation, prototyping and response to critique. The summer camp introduces these girls to the idea of college life and stimulates their interest in potential career paths in science and engineering while incorporating summer fun activities.

We were so excited to surprise Thema Campbell, Girl Power’s CEO, with our donation to help cover the cost of STEAM Summer Camp for 30 Overtown girls.

Frost Museum of Science
The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is finally open and we have to admit, it’s pretty impressive. With four buildings and 250,000 square feet to explore, conquering the entire museum can be a feat. That’s why we’ve rounded up the top five things you won’t want to miss when visiting the new Frost Science Museum.

 

1. LASERsHOW: Light, Color and Geometry
Frost Museum of Science Laser Lasers
Encounter light in an entirely new way through an engaging experience in this four station gallery. Each station offers laser demonstrations that show you how light is bounced, bent, diffracted or recombined.

 

2. MeLaβ
Frost Museum of Science melab me lab
Exercise your senses in the most interactive space of the Frost Museum of Science. The entire family can get a MeLab card, choose an avatar and collect stamps as they come across the different learning stations in the lab. Or, just moonwalk across the interactive dance floor – that works too!

 

3. The (stunning) Aquarium
Frost Museum of Science oculus aquarium
You’ve probably already seen this on your Instagram feed but trust us when we tell you – the 13 foot wide oculus lens at the bottom of the 500,000 gallon Gulf Stream Aquarium is a sight you won’t want to miss. Take note, people tend to camp out under the oculus. So, consider a membership and plan your visit during member-only hours!

 

4. Feathers to the Stars
Frost Museum of Science
From animal flight to humans going airborne and space exploration, this exhibition covers everything aerodynamic. Learn about birds’ biomechanics, use a launcher to fly a paper airplane and land a spacecraft on Mars. Oh, there’s also a 30 foot dinosaur!

 

5. The Rooftop
Frost Museum of Science view
Pet stingrays, hang out with rescued birds and check out the top of the immense Gulf Stream Aquarium. While you’re up here, be sure to take in the spectacular views of Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. They even have viewing scopes!
