Rosa Parks: School Partnership with OMSI

A grant from the American Honda Foundation is funding a unique partnership between OMSI and Rosa Parks Elementary. OMSI staff members visit the school regularly to expand teachers' science curriculum, provide workshops where parents can learn easy, at-home science projects, and bring students back to OMSI to explore exhibits and participate in lab experiences. The partnership

highlights our commitment to STEM education and the local Portland community.
