Cade Museum Foundation, Inc. (AKA Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention)
The Cade Museum for Creativity + Invention will bring every 4th and 5th grader from Metcalfe Elementary (Title 1 school with 90% free/reduced lunch) to the museum three times each, including bussing. By allowing each student multiple visits the museum has a greater chance at a lasting impact. To enhance the field trips, the students will submit a project where they will invent “the next great toy” and present to their fellow classmates. Using creativity, while learning basic science concepts in an environment that allows for experimentation will provide a safe space for the students to grow.
