Bay Area Discovery Museum
Log Number: ARPML-250804-OMLS-22
The Bay Area Discovery Museum will continue its mobile engineering lab program, which serves schools and libraries throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The mobile engineering lab program delivers research-backed, hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning experiences for pre-K through 5th-grade students that align with the Next Generation Science Standards. This work will directly respond to critical community needs created or exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including mobile and socially distanced classrooms and access to STEM enrichment programs. During the 2021/2022 school year and summer, the museum will deliver 74 school programs of approximately three to four sessions each for 5,300 pre-K through 5th-grade students, along with 12 library and community programs for 1,200 children. The program will prioritize serving Title I schools and schools with the widest identified achievement gaps.
