MUSEUM OF ARTS & SCIENCES
Zach Zacharius, Education Curator of the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS), Daytona Beach, obtained a $10,000 Archaeology National Grant from the American Association of University Women for Burns Science and Technology Charter School. A “mock” dig site was created on the school campus, teaching all students about the science of archaeology. The school integrated this hands-on-activity into classroom academics. The MOAS also provides a Fall Family Science Night on the school campus, which included 15 science stations. Each grade level has opportunity to attend the Children’s Science Center and planetarium presentation at the MOAS during the year for only $5.00.
Boston Whaler, located in Edgewater, FL has donated backpacks for students, every year since the school opened in 2011. The backpacks are loaded with supplies and are delivered in a Boston Whaler boat at the beginning of each school year.
