Museum in Motion and Sponsorship Opportunities
Thank you to all who have supported the Museum in Motion program, bringing a piece of history to classrooms throughout the Florida Keys! With your help staff and volunteers were able to reach out to numerous schools located in the Florida Keys.
The History of Diving Museum is seeking donations to support educational outreach to help introduce students to the rich history of exploring under the sea and the unique South Florida connection to diving around the world. Below is a sampling of our current projects:
Dive Into Reading Book Club: HDM has partnered with Monroe County School District to offer a book club to students throughout the Keys. Reading Coaches from eight schools gathered 34 students to participate. Each pupil was given an autographed copy of Escape Galapagos by Dr. Ellen Prager. The program includes a book review questionnaire, 2 virtual workshops and 1 virtual "Meet & Greet with the Author." Students are able to keep their signed book and will also receive a free pass to the Museum.
KAPOW (Kids And the Power of Work): HDM has partnered with Learning for Success Inc., Miami Dade School District and Cutler Ridge Elementary to participate in 8 virtual sessions to help students connect their strengths, skills, talents and interests to their dreams. The curriculum relates what they are learning today, with how that skill is used in our work environment. It is very exciting to introduce the students to the Museum field, as well as other occupations working under the sea. For session 5, HDM hosts a virtual tour and gives students a free pass to the Museum to explore the exhibits through December 31st.
Career Day: HDM participated in AcadeMir Charter School Preparatory's Career Day, presenting various intern and employment opportunities related to the Museum field to 1st to 5th grade students in Miami Dade. The goal is to introduce students to the Museum field, as well as other occupations working under the sea.

We visit schools throughout Monroe County, plus additional schools in the south Florida area, reaching an average of 700 students per year.
No amount is too large or too small. All donations noted as MIM will be applied to educational outreach for students.
HDM staff and volunteers have unique educational outreach programs tailored to schools and universities to introduce students to the international story of "the quest to explore under the sea". The programs incorporate a presentation and hands-on activities.
We can also schedule visits to schools, colleges and groups outside the Keys. Contact Lisa Mongelia, Executive Director, to see how Museum in Motion can dive in near you.
