Project Description


In 2018, EVM will make history. We're integrating new children's hands-on exhibits into our permanent collection gallery.  Recent studies are showing that using STEM principles to teach children historical information enhances knowledge retention and increases focus.  As Norfolk's regional museum, we provide a unique community space that celebrates local cultural history, natural history, and American history.  By adding STEM activities alongside our exhibits, we aim to offer area children a more interactive museum experience and provide additional learning and growth opportunities for the whole community!

Your support today will go toward funding new STEM-focused children's exhibits that provide hands-on, interactive learning for the community's youth!
