Discovery Night

September 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Since space exploration is so captivating, this year’s Discovery
Night committee selected this theme to encourage children to
investigate the outer limits of their imaginations. By launching
them into the world of space literature, it is our goal to encourage
children not only to read more but to also reach for the stars
through STEM discovery. We will have out-of-this-world food
and drinks, along with fun musical entertainment, special activities
and a silent auction.

Discovery Night is the Mississippi Children’s Museum’s signature
family fundraising event hosted by MCM Partners. Held to
coincide with the Mississippi Science Festival, this special evening
celebrates children’s literature and delves into the fascinating world of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). MCM
is committed to positively influencing literacy development in
children by enhancing reading readiness and improving literacy
skills, fostering a love of language and of books, encouraging
children who are already reading to read more, and promoting
reading as an interactive, family activity that everyone can enjoy.
MCM is also committed to developing in children critical thinking
and communication skills, creativity and collaborative, real-world
problem solving by engaging them with innovative science and
math-based exhibits, programs, and special events. Developing
these skills is vital to the creation of lifelong learners, and promoting positive futures for Mississippi’s children. The proceeds from this event help support MCM’s Literacy and STEM Initiatives as well as provide critical operating revenue that will enable the museum to remain accessible to all children.
