Curious Minds offers a variety of educational programming and special events year-round that provide children opportunities to explore the world around them using hands-on concepts of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. With weekly programs geared towards crawlers up to junior high, we have something for everyone! Individual and corporate sponsorships of these events help us fulfill our mission to provide one-of-a-kind educational experiences while engaging as many area families and children as possible!
Sponsors can impact the museum in a variety of ways.
All year round, CMDZ provides hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) based programing for children of all ages. Our weekly programming consists of Toddler Time, Jitterbug Club (geared for ages crawling and up), and Dr. Curious Lab (appropriate for school-age children).
Our interactive programs are based on set themes for each month and build upon each other week to week, allowing children to exercise their imaginations, expand their knowledge, and help establish a foundation for life-long learning. For just $250, you can sponsor an entire month's worth of programming (up to 12 programs a month), aiding in the educational enrichment of local children.
Monthly Program Sponsors will receive acknowledgement at each weekly program, via social media posts, and mentioned in our monthly newsletter.
