NIH Science Education Partnership Award

The National Children's Museum, Children's National Medical Center, the George Washington University Graduate School of Education and Human Development, District of Columbia Public Schools, and Prince George's County Public Schools, work together to develop “Being Me,” a five-year phase I/II SEPA project. 

The primary aim of the project is to develop a cross-educational, integrated, art-focused science curriculum for teachers, children and parents in a community where health care disparities and low literacy are barriers to gaining knowledge of ways to improve science literacy- and health-related behaviors. 

“Being Me” will be implemented at three elementary schools with six fourth-grade classes that serve low-income and low-literacy children and in hospital clinics and event spaces.
