with Denise Young, Ed.D.
Bell Museum, University of Minnesota
The Bell Museum of Natural History was established in 1872 as the official natural history museum for the state of Minnesota and includes world‐class collections and award‐winning public programming. In 2011, the Bell Museum was joined by the Minnesota Planetarium Society in a historic merger that expanded the capacity and range of educational experiences for youth and adults. The new Bell Museum opened in July 2018 in St. Paul, and showcases University of Minnesota research and discovery. The museum’s exhibits and public programming will foster scientific literacy for all ages and will serve as a vital gateway to the university for the larger community.
We welcome Denise Young, Executive Director of the Bell Museum. Before assuming her role at the Bell Museum in September 2016, Young headed the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In addition to her museum leadership, she was also a clinical assistant professor in the department of Learning Sciences and Psychological Studies at the University of North Carolina School of Education, and has been a lead classroom educator and gifted education specialist at an inner city integrated arts magnet school and a science-focused elementary public school adjacent to Duke University. She holds an Ed.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in curriculum and instruction, M.S.A. in school administration/educational leadership and B.A. in early childhood education.
