Project Overview

Over 160,000 students are directly reached each year by Science Museum programs in their own schools or in the museum itself. With Legacy money, we have begun the process of enhancing these school outreach programs in ways informed by conversations with schools about how we can partner with them and meet their needs most effectively and cost efficiently. We look forward to continuing this effort by developing plans to increase science, technology, engineering and mathematics learning opportunities for students throughout Minnesota.
