Historically, public television stations, museums, and libraries have successfully developed programs and community initiatives to enhance the public’s appreciation of the arts. In a similar vein, the partnering organizations endeavor to enhance the community’s appreciation of science. In order to accomplish this goal, they will build and promote Science, INC: a community partnership encouraging science appreciation by developing, coordinating, and cross-promoting science-related events, programs, and resources for all ages.
The Science, INC partnership has received funding from the Partnership for Learners: a cooperative federal funding opportunity sponsored by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The grant will officially start on November 1, 2006, and end on April 30, 2008. The majority of partnership activities will launch in 2007 with a year of science-based community programs and cross-promotional marketing among the partner organizations.
