Science Beyond the Boundaries Early Learning collaborative is a partnership of twenty science centers to share programs, research, and lessons learned. Building on the early learning expertise of five of the partners, all museums will enhance their science and school readiness programs for children aged 0-4. The collaborative will provide individual assistance to museums by linking them to knowledgeable colleagues and helping to customize materials. It will also provide free science resources and curriculum guides on its website and in a quarterly newsletter. Science Beyond the Boundaries intends to expand to serve 160 museums seeking innovative, research-based interactive strategies for early childhood science.
