Corning Connects will provide an opportunity for underserved school children from South Texas to visit the IMAS for transformative field experiences at the museum.
An overwhelming majority of these students will be visiting a museum for the first time. The goal of this grant program is to reach students in schools who may not have resources for providing informal art and science learning and out-of-classroom learning experiences and are making their first visit to IMAS.
With the support of Corning, student groups from area schools can visit at no cost for an IMAS educator-led, hands-on visit with content in science, art, and culture.
Who: K-12 school groups (units of 25 kids) who are new to the IMAS OR who have not had a field trip to IMAS in 3+ years
What: Field trips to IMAS with admission funded by Corning Connects
When: 2023-2024 School Year (November, December, April, May)
Corning Connects would be available on a first-come, first-served basis to area schools. Eligible schools would make a field trip reservation to visit the museum and the per student tour price would come directly from this fund plus one adult chaperone per 10 students for free.
