Alec J. Warren

Alec J. Warren brings more than 15 years of experience in informal education to the Frost Science team and spent a year as director of science education before transitioning into his role as the director of the Frost Planetarium in 2023. Warren strives to support all aspects of the museum’s mission by bringing engaging experiences to guests of all ages through engaging hands-on programming, science shows, exhibits and technology-based learning activities, and dynamic Frost Planetarium shows. His favorite astronomy quote comes from Carl Sagan and speaks to the uniqueness of every person in our world: “Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let them live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.”

Prior to joining Frost Science, Warren spent seven years at the Museum of Science & History (MOSH) in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, as the education manager, filling a variety of roles and duties related to education, exhibitions, curation, and operations over the course of his time there. While at MOSH, he became a nationally certified STEM educator through the NISE STEM 2.0 program, curated multiple signature exhibitions, and designed award-winning programs for K-12 students.

He holds two master’s degrees in environmental history and in STEM education from the University of North Florida, as well as a B.A. in history and B.S. in anthropology from the University of Central Florida.
