Log Number: ARPML-250963-OMLS-22

Discovery Children’s Museum in Las Vegas will expand its existing DISCOVERY on Wheels program to reach 18,000 students in the classroom and community childcare locations across the Las Vegas Valley as the local community recovers from the economic and educational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is an innovative, immersive learning experience using medical models, replicas, children’s literature, and dynamic presentations to teach practical, age-appropriate health science to children in pre-K through 5th grade. The curriculum is based on Nevada State Academic Content Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Through the program’s unique curriculum for each grade level, children can grow with the program and learn something new each year. The program will inspire interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) subjects and health or medical careers, improve health outcomes, and increase access to high-quality educational experiences for underserved children.
