Acquisition of multimedia technology to connect the museums to Mississippi schools, providing students with access to both museum materials and persons of interest (such as academic experts and those with first-hand experience). Funds will also cover technical and curricular training for the schools based on the needs of the schools

We request $100,000 for a multimedia classroom learning initiative to extend the resources of the Museum of Mississippi History and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum directly into classrooms across Mississippi after they open in 2017. Using state-of-the-art equipment and multimedia programs, we will provide recently trained teachers with materials never before available. Students will interact with artifacts, stories, voices, music, and art and have two-way communication with curators, historians, civil rights leaders, and storytellers. They will be engaged in Mississippi’s rich but difficult history. The initiative will provide intensive technological and academic support for 30 schools and academic support for another 30 schools that already have laptops and high-speed internet. Thousands more students will be reached in classrooms and other community sites that host youth programs and already have this technological capacity.
