North Carolina Science Museums

emerge from COVID brighter and better

  At last, we are seeing some light at the end of the tunnel, and STEM partners across the state are looking into the spring and summer with optimism and hope. Brent Lubbock, in particular, is excited to witness the museums and science centers in North Carolina flourish and innovate after a long—sometimes quiet, sometimes chaotic—few years. Lubbock has the unique perspective of serving as both the Director of Operations and Development at Sylvan Heights Bird Park and the Chair of the North Carolina Science Network. He learned first-hand how to face the challenges of the pandemic leading a local science center and how to collaborate with disparate STEM partners throughout the state to take advantage of best practices and creative problem solving in unprecedented times.
