The Museum of Science and Industry (MSI), Chicago will implement a two-part community outreach project to bring dynamic science content beyond the museum and into Chicago communities. Building on successful live, onsite programming, MSI will develop a new offsite program. This program will bring MSI’s Guest Experiences team to schools and community spaces throughout Chicago with four types of interactive experiences: Learning Lab, School Assembly, Whole-School Takeover, and Science Fair. In summer 2022, MSI will partner with community serving organizations to distribute summer science kits that provide hands-on learning activities. MSI will partner with Chicago Public Library, Chicago Park District, local schools, and other community organizations to reach elementary and middle school youth across Chicago’s neighborhoods. These programs seek to promote educational growth and emotional healing from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
