Agenda Item #20
PA9 South Florida Science Museum
Over the years, the School District has collaborated extensively with the South Florida Science Museum on a variety of programs and initiatives to enhance science education and raise student achievement in science.
Most recently, this collaboration resulted in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for eleven students and two teachers from Palm Beach County. They had the opportunity to speak with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station as it orbited over Florida.
The South Florida Science Museum reaches over 40,000 students each year by providing in-house and outreach programs throughout Palm Beach County. The museum provides over 30 scientific programs for Palm Beach County students aligned with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
