Community Science Administration
Siinya Williams is the Senior Director of the Community Science Department for the Saint Louis Science Center. She has a Bachelor of Science in business management from Fontbonne University. Siinya has been employed at the Saint Louis Science Center for more than 20 years. She first started as a reservationist for Visitor Services and then was quickly promoted to the Box Office Assistant Manager. She was later promoted to the Manager of Visitor Services, which included the Box office and Reservation Departments. After 10 successful years Siinya accepted an opportunity offered by Diane Miller, Senior Vice President of Community Science and Programs Department to be an informal Educator for the Youth Exploring Science Program (YES), a nationally recognized program conceptualized in 1996 with the goal of working with teens from communities traditionally underrepresented in science-related career fields throughout their high school years to increase their interest in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). After accepting that position, Siinya moved up to the Manager of Community Partnerships and Events, then to the Associate Director of Community Science. Upon VP Miller’s departure to pursue other career opportunities, it was only fitting for Siinya to take the reins and lead the Community Science Department.
