Celebrating a Year of Service

The Museum reached a major milestone as its 20th AmeriCorps team completed a year of committed service in mid-August.  The 2015-16 AmeriCorps members served 19,000 hours as they:

  • Facilitated engaging problem-solving activities for 1,100 Head Start preschoolers
  • Engaged 200 elementary school-aged children with inspiring play-based math and science activities during after-school “Learning Clubs”
  • Welcomed 1,400 low-income children and family members to free Museum family nights
  • Engaged thousands Museum visitors in hands-on exhibits and developed interactive public programs
  • And much more! 

Tremendous thanks to our graduating AmeriCorps members for their year of dedicated service to children and families in need.
