Brooklyn Children's Museum

Log Number: MA-251875-OMS-22

Brooklyn Children’s Museum will expand its Museum-on-the-Go (MOTG) program, an initiative designed to introduce collections-based learning experiences using a “field-trip-in-a-box” concept. The museum will incorporate new elements to the existing program for Pre-K classrooms and extend its reach to K–3 educators and students. Project activities will include conducting formative research and outreach through meetings with an educator advisory council of K–3 teachers; creating 24 new MOTG cases aligned with NY state learning standards; providing eight educator professional development workshops; and producing a summative evaluation report on the Pre-K initiative. The project will serve 100 educators and 3,000 students by providing object and inquiry-based resources for classrooms, and the museum will disseminate project results at professional conferences and through its website.
