RCHS & Investigate Minnesota

RCHS and our partners are collaborating to launch a new summer school program!

Investigate MN

RCHS and our lead partner, St. Paul City School, developed and launched a new museum-based, 5-week, summer school program in 2015. Additional partners include the Bell Museum of Natural History, Minnesota Museum of American Art, Science Museum of Minnesota, Minnesota Historical Society, and Saint Paul Public Library. The program focuses on 30 children in the 6th grade from St. Paul City School. This is the first year of a four-year pilot program designed to boost academic achievement and help close the achievement gap by reducing the harmful effects of the “summer slide.”
