Moran Teen Advisory Council

The Houston Museum of Natural Science is committed to increasing access and expanding programming targeted to teens and young adults. Beginning Fall 2021 the inaugural Moran Teen Advisory Council (TAC) will gather information on how to best serve area teens at the museum, plan teen-specific events for the future, contribute to the museum’s social media, generate ideas for helping teens further their academic and professional interests and demonstrate to teens the importance of science, volunteering and non-profit institutions in the community.
