Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Log Number: ARPML-250924-OMLS-22

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum will use its team of highly trained educators and its background as a leader in digital and hands-on learning to bring programming and targeted scholarship opportunities to K–8 students in and around St. Clair County, Michigan. Through this program, the museum aims to mitigate learning loss from the COVID-19 pandemic by hiring additional part-time education team members, who will create a new series of programs designed to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, the environment, aviation, and aerospace. The museum also will provide support for students to attend the NASA Challenger Center, opening in January 2022 at St. Clair County Community College, where museum staff will lead students through an intensive and hands-on learning experience focused on space exploration.
