IN THE KIDBIZ HERSCHELL CARROUSEL FACTORY MUSEUM TO DEVELOP STEM PROGRAMMING The Herschell Carrousel Fac- tory Museum has been selected to join the  STEM 2035 Cohort, a $5.5-million initiative developed by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, through which grant funding and technical assistance will be provided to 17 existing after- school and summer STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) pro- grams in Western New York and South- east Michigan. The Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum will be using the funding to: • Pilot a Summer STEM Camp program with a strong focus on physical science and engineering for disadvan- taged youth in ages 11-15. The program will utilize the carousel and amusement industry to attract youth to develop an interest in STEM. In 2020, the summer camps will expand to school breaks. • Present “Summer STEM Week- ends” at the museum. This will allow youth who cannot commit to a full week summer camp to have an immersive, directed STEM experience. In 2020, it will expand to school holiday weekends. • Expand outreach by continuing their STEM partnership with the Buffalo Public Schools “Saturday Academy” program, and offering participants an opportunity to visit the museum. Sec- ondly, they will be developing partner- ships with the North Tonawanda Youth Center and other after school programs. The PEAR Institute at Harvard, a subject matter expert in afterschool STEM programs, will provide technical assistance, program assessments and support for grantees in the STEM 2035 cohort. The Herschell Carrousel Museum is delighted to have the opportunity to expand their educational outreach. The museum hopes to continue build- ing relationships within the community. The Herschell Carrousel Museum will be looking to hire an educator to fulfill the requirements of the grant.
