It is the mission, duty and purpose of Barnes Foundation for Arts and Sciences to address, educate, coordinate, and provide aid and relief to eradicate scientific illiteracy, promote scientific advancement and lessen community deterioration.

We recognize that an understanding of *STEAM education creates critical thinkers,

increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.



"Once you have an innovation culture, even those who are not scientists or engineers - poets, actors, journalists -

they, as communities, embrace the meaning of what it is to be scientifically literate."
