The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum Receives Kiwanis Foundation Grant to Deliver Educational Programming to Ann Arbor, Ypsi Schools

Monday, July 29, 2013

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum recently received a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor to support educational programming for Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Public Schools.  The funding will bring the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum’s “Super Science and Math Days” programming to elementary and middle schools that serve low to moderate income students in these districts.

“The generous grant support from the Kiwanis Foundation for ‘Super Science and Math Days’ will provide local schools with a great tool for engaging students and exciting them to learn about math and science,” said Mel Drumm, Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum executive director.  “The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum is committed to inspiring young minds to embrace STEAM (Science Technology Engineering, Art and Math) education through interactive learning.”

“Super Science and Math Days” are Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum outreach programs that serve students in grades K-8 with 10 hands-on, dynamic math and science activity stations that are tailored by grade-level and curriculum.  The programs enrich the existing science and math curricula at public schools with hands-on activities that align with Michigan Science Grade Level Content Expectations.

Schools can select from three different “Super Science and Math Days” programs: Young Scientist Club, Science Variety Day and Super Math Day.

Through the Kiwanis grant, five schools in the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti school districts will receive free “Super Science and Math Day” programs.
