The Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) is an interactive playground that offers hands-on science, technology and engineering exhibits for the Tampa Bay community.
With the help of donors, corporate sponsors and Hillsborough County, MOSI has grown to be the largest science center in the southeast and a source of education for 15 million guests annually. The museum has more than 100 activities that are designed to spark curiosity; children and adults can build robots, perform brain puzzles and experience Connectus – an exhibit that introduces brand new technologies not yet available to the public. The learning opportunities are endless for both children and educators: MOSI hosts field trips for 80,000 students per year and offers free training for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) educators.

President & CEO
Mackenzie has helped improve MOSI’s finances — with year-to-date figures for fiscal year 2017 showing MOSI performing better than fiscal year 2016. He has led a team of staff and museum consultants in developing a substantial turnaround plan to refocus MOSI on its mission of science education and reshape MOSI as a financially sustainable organization. That plan received a unanimous vote of support from the Hillsborough County Commission, and is being implemented over the next four months
