Feb. 23, 2024: Great Lakes Science Center celebrated The Cleveland Creates Gallery presented by The Sherwin-Williams Company, a new addition to the museum’s permanent exhibits inspired by the innovative spirit of Cleveland. The new gallery underscores our community’s story of manufacturing technology and represents a $2.25 million investment in changing the Science Center’s visitor experience.

Inside the gallery, guests will engage with interactive exhibits that dive into the realms of technology, sensors, data and remote robotics, and will give them an opportunity to explore the tools and skills that are driving advances in Northeast Ohio.

A ribbon-cutting and reception for the new gallery was followed by a special Emerging Tech Career Expo event presented by Saint-Gobain that highlights many of the Science Center’s community STEM workforce development partners. Students from 13 area high schools will be able to visit with representatives from 10 different workforce partners including The Sherwin-Williams Company, Saint-Gobain, Timken, Rockwell Automation, Swagelok, Olympic Steel, Vitamix, NASA, Moen and PNC.

“Saint-Gobain North America is proud to be supporting the Science Center’s Emerging Tech Career Expo. This event offers students from across Northeast Ohio the unique opportunity to engage with local STEM professionals and gain a better understanding of emerging technologies and advanced manufacturing right here in our community,” said Colin Reynolds, Global Director, Brand & Communications Saint-Gobain Life Sciences.

Stationed throughout the gallery are real-life representations of STEM professionals from across the community, covering industries such as aeronautics, automation, remote robotics, steel and chemistry. These authentic and representational members of the community are embedded into the exhibits that will inspire guests to see themselves confidently in the STEM-rich workforce of tomorrow.

The gallery was developed, designed and fabricated with a multi-lingual approach including dual language interactives, videos and labels for broader inclusion.
