Kaleideum was formed by the merger of The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem and SciWorks on July 1, 2016. Kaleideum Downtown (formerly the Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem) was founded by the Junior League of Winston-Salem and opened its doors on November 20, 2004. Kaleideum North (formerly SciWorks) was founded by the Junior League of Winston-Salem and opened its doors as the Nature Science Ce
nter in 1964. The two museums began talks of a possible collaboration in early 2015, with a new mission of “Inspiring wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning in our children and community through interactive play and discovery.” The merged entity combines the features of both museums – blending arts, literacy, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) orientations into an integrated approach to learning.

Many of us are already familiar with the famous hidden figure Katherine Johnson!
Katherine Johnson was an American mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. crewed spaceflights. She had a reputation for mastering complex manual calculations which helped pioneer the use of computers to perform the tasks.
Johnson's work included calculating trajectories, launch windows, and emergency return paths for the Project Mercury spaceflights.
Her calculations were also essential to the beginning of the Space Shuttle program, and she worked on plans for a mission to Mars. She is an important part of our modern day understanding of space.
Let's all take a look at Kunle Olukotun, a talented computer scientist!
