A Mouthful of History

Funded by the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, A Mouthful of History will provide online educational modules that combine the health sciences, science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM), and the humanities for Pre-K-12 learners.

The Making Schools Smile Fund

The Making Schools Smile Fund was established to ensure access to oral health education for Title I schools and low-income communities by providing transportation to the museum, developing virtual and off-site educational resources and programming, and to supplement and expand oral health education in elementary schools.

The Making Schools Smile Fund can be supported through donations, planned giving, and corporate partnerships.
