Waterloo North Hydro Continues Support for S.T.E.M.
$5,000 donation to help THEMUSEUM continue its Kids Inspiring Change program
Kitchener, ON – For the eighth year in a row, Waterloo North Hydro has generously donated $5,000 to THEMUSEUM to help sustain its education programs, specifically those within the S.T.E.M. field. This donation will go directly towards Kids Inspiring Change, an educational program that has been taught to over 1,000 elementary school children in the past year.
Kids Inspiring Change focuses on the science behind different types of energy, and our use, and misuse, of these energy sources. The program also includes activities using littleBits, which show how electricity is created, and inspires young children to become involved and interested in aspects of electrical engineering
“We are very grateful for Waterloo North Hydro’s ongoing support towards our educational programs, specifically within the field of S.T.E.M.,” said David Marskell, CEO of THEMUSEUM. “Our goal is to awe, inspire and enlighten every child that comes through our building, and with this donation, we will be able to continue to provide and deliver successful educational programs that ultimately help drive our future generations.”
“We are proud to support THEMUSEUM’s programs as they help our customers better understand energy and where it’s used and the costs associated with it,” said Jeff Quint, Manager of Energy Efficiency and Corporate Communications with Waterloo North Hydro. “Programs such as those offered by THEMUSEUM are essential to educating children, building awareness and creating a culture around energy and the rising need to conserve energy and make energy more efficient.”
Kids Inspiring Change is one of over 30 unique educational programs that THEMUSEUM offers every school year, and is geared specifically towards Grades 1, 2 and 5. More information about educational programs is available online at www.THEMUSEUM.ca/educators.
