Sometimes it is a challenge to get middle and high school students to engage with history and find it relevant to their modern day lives.
The Discovery Times Square Foundation provides a comprehensive educational experience for students that inspire and improve their ability to learn - in and outside the classroom. As part of our efforts we will seek to provide admission for 12,000 underprivileged children per year. Launched in 2011, the Discovery Times Square Foundation’s (DTSF) mission is to provide New York City teachers and their students with a unique instruction and exhibition experience that is both educational and entertaining. Through an innovative approach, DTSF created a Professional Development Training Program that allows teachers to earn Professional Credits through in-depth course work based on the merging of exhibit education techniques with the Common Core Standards. Educators then have the opportunity to bring their students to the exhibit and use the new techniques to extend classroom learning. Each program is tailored for a specific exhibit. Previous curricula have included historical and cultural learning through past exhibits, The Dead Sea Scrolls and The Terracotta Warriors, and scientific learning through CSI: The Experience and the current Body Worlds: Pulse exhibit. DTSF targets schools with limited funding for these endeavors in order to provide opportunities that benefit not only these underprivileged students but also their communities at large.
The Discovery Times Square Foundation is unique in its commitment to providing teachers with the skills to inspire students to imagine and explore new topics and awaken their passion for learning.
