Bootheel Youth Museum, Inc
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Southeast Missouri suffers from chronic poverty and tight regional school budgets limit the purchase of scientific supplies/materials so that every student can engage in hands on science. The Bootheel Youth Museum (BYM) conducts hands on educational science outreach workshops/programs in schools throughout Southeast Missouri. BYM Educational workshops allow every participant to engage in hands on scientific discovery, enabling them to develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
