We partner with dozens of community and cultural organizations each year to reach kids and families across our region and to help promote shared values. Through cultural awareness and engagement across lines of difference, we will empower the next generation with the skills to be more compassionate and collaborative problem-solvers. Let’s explore ways to work together.

INVENTED FIELD GUIDE
To help our community advocate effectively for maker and invention education opportunities, KID Museum partnered with Nation of Makers and The Lemelson Foundation to create the InventEd Field Guide. This resource includes stories collected from interviews with leaders in education and public policy, as well as data, key messages, and practical strategies to empower stakeholders interested in promoting maker and invention education for all learners.
KID Museum is partnering with Montgomery County to reach those children most affected by pandemic-related learning loss via in-person Educational Equity and Enrichment Hubs. Through these equity hubs, located in high-needs schools, KID Museum provides creative, virtual enrichment programs for kindergarten through fifth grade students. Equity Hubs are the result of a collaboration between The Children’s Opportunity Fund, the Black and Brown Coalition, Montgomery County Council, MCPS, and private funders.
Our six-year partnership with Identity, a community organization that serves Latinx youth and families, continues during the pandemic with virtual after-school enrichment programs for elementary and middle school students. Weekly sessions, which began in early December and will continue through spring, include designing MakeCode arcades, building circuits, cardboard fabrication, and maker games — using high and low-tech materials sent to each student from KID Museum.
