FIND Orphy

Status: Completed (January 2012–August 2013)

 

Description

In the summers of 2012 and 2013, FIND Orphy provided a range of informal science education opportunities for children, parents, schools, and interested community members. Weekend science activities were hosted throughout the year, which culminated a one-week summer camp for elementary students at the Orpheum. “Orphy,” the Orpheum’s mascot, served as a teaching mechanism to help young museum visitors relate to the project.

Partners and Funding

The FIND Orphy collaborative outreach program between Project NEURON and the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum in Champaign, Illinois, was made possible with funding through the University of Illinois Office of Public Engagement.
