“Discovery World Museum Joins Forces with Chemours”

Chemours and Discovery World on Market have announced a $350,000 STEM education grant through the Chemours Vibrant Communities initiative. The grant, which is supported by volunteers at Chemours’ Washington plant in Parkersburg, will be awarded to Discovery World on Market’s Children’s Museum. The exhibits at the museum include the Ball Factory, which offers children challenging physical obstacles and ball activities inspired by the factory process. The River Adventures exhibit offers STEM activities and imaginative play, while the Makerspace area provides opportunities for children to collaborate on projects. The Chemours grant will provide access passes to underprivileged children and their families to experience all that the museum has to offer. It also provides funding for Science Saturday and Chemours volunteers, who will follow a format similar to the Fun with Science program at local schools. The grant supports the communities in which Chemours operates and highlights its commitment to corporate responsibility.
