This Sunday, our partners at Verizon helped extend free access to students and families from local schools for a Family Day at KID Museum.
The Verizon Innovative Learning Initiative is designed to democratize technology, bringing new digital resources to schools and their students so that the next generation can be empowered to change the world. So far, Verizon has helped 1.5 million students at 561 schools across the country — including Montgomery County Public Schools and DC Public Schools students at Argyle Magnet, Forest Oak, and Neelsville middle schools, as well as the Southeast Friendship charter schools.
Their partners at Southeast Friendship contributed the excitement by showcasing the kinds of technological innovations Verizon can help schools access. While some technology, like the LEGO used for their engineering challenge, may be familiar, others, like the two interactive applications, inspired students to ask questions and problem-solve on their own.
KID Museum is proud to partner with corporations like Verizon as they strive to make digital education accessible to all. For more information about Sundays at KID, including upcoming Family Days for MCPS students, check our Visit page.
