American Honda Foundation
Supports Science Learning in Indianapolis
The Children's Museum is pleased to be a recipient of a generous grant from the American Honda Foundation supporting Curious Scientific Investigators (CSI): Case of the Mysterious Stain program in 2012-2013.
Through a partnership with Indianapolis Public Schools, this
program invites 2nd grade classes and their teachers on a
real-world science investigation at the Museum. Students
use science process skills to identify the source of a
mysterious water leak, while teachers participate in a
professional development session on inquiry-based learning.
Pre- and post-visit activities prepare the students for their visit
and reinforce science learning.
Through this grant, the American Honda Foundation continues
its mission to help meet the needs of American society in the
areas of youth and scientific education by awarding grants to
nonprofits, while strategically assisting communities in deriving
long term benefits.
