Projects included loaning objects, digitizing collections and school tours.
For neighborhood schools, needs identified included: outside education; hands-on experiences; in-depth supplemental information. Assets included gallery space, knowledgeable staff and interactives. Collaborators identified included: various faculty; education department; youth; students; parents. Projects included on line presence; internships, school tours, curriculum and prototypes.
