One Drop and the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum
The One Drop Foundation donated $20,000 to the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum in 2018. This donation enabled the Discovery Children’s Museum to offer water conservation field trips to Title 1 schools in the Clark County School District, reaching over 930 students, offering students the chance to experience water education outside of the traditional classroom.
The DISCOVERY Children’s Museum has been open to the Las Vegas community since September 1990. It has developed into a vital asset of the community as one of Southern Nevada’s major educational institutions, providing hands-on interactive learning. The funds provided by the One Drop Foundation have enabled the Museum to offer water conservation education to Clark County School District students outside of the traditional classroom.
The partnership between the Museum and the One Drop Foundation has impacted over 930 students in the Las Vegas valley.
The funding enabled the Museum to offer water conservation field trips to Title 1 schools in the Clark County School District. These field trips were planned with specific objectives in mind:
• Identify various daily water uses
• Discuss water conservation within their everyday lives
• Discuss local and global water accessibility
• Allow students to design a shower timer to help them conserve water at home
In addition to the field trips, the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum was also able to participate as a partner in the Walk for Water for One Drop community event on October 18, 2018, at the Springs Preserve. The Museum hosted a hands-on booth which included a water droplet collage and a water droplet game. The DISOVERY Children’s Museum sent a heartfelt thanks to the One Drop Foundation with their generous sponsorship, explaining that the community outreach the Museum was able to provide to students in the Las Vegas community would not have been possible without One Drop’s generosity. And both One Drop and the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum agree that our shared goals are a shared asset to the Las Vegas community.
