Log Number: IGSM-245897-OMS-20

The Living Arts and Science Center, in partnership with other organizations serving residents of the East End and North Lexington neighborhoods in Lexington, Kentucky, will implement the Community LEAD (Learning, Engagement, and Development) Labs project. The project will expand capacity to address the needs of low-income families by increasing access to and use of the museum's Maker Space and Innovation Lab. In addition, the project will develop programs for those spaces throughout the year that engage children, teens, and adults in exploration, project-based learning, and collaborative problem solving. It also will develop a program to involve teens in weekly hands-on career exploration activities and integrate new activities into existing programs, including an afterschool program for middle school students, field trips for elementary and middle school students, and badge-earning workshops for Girl Scouts.
