Night at The Museum 2017

 

Let’s go back in time… Back to a time when IMAGINATION and DISCOVERY ruled your universe. When the tiniest of rocks and the largest of stars elicited a sense of pure fascination for the world around you, begging the question… What does it all mean?

This is Night at the Museum, a Gala evening of discovery and immersion into the wonders of Science, Natural History and Art. Your support will enable and inspire under served students and educators throughout the Kansas City area to re-discover science not only as a way to understand the world, but make a difference; in their lives and our community.

 

Your sponsorship of Night at the Museum provides funds to support KC URBAN ADVANTAGE.

KC URBAN ADVANTAGE is a standards and research-based collaboration between under served schools and Kansas City metro cultural and learning institutions such as museums, science centers and zoos, to collectively provide extraordinary resources in direct support of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) – specific goals.

This innovative and world-class program administered by the Museum at Prairiefire, and originally developed in New York City by the American Museum of Natural History, provides professional development for educators and administrators; equipment and supplies for schools; and field experiences and scholarships for students, their families, educators, and administrators in the greater KC metro and urban core.
