Nickelodeon has partnered with KID Museum and Hispanic Heritage Foundation to create an Anti-Hate guide for Latinx, focusing on parents and educators. The Anti-Hate Latinx guide is part of Nickelodeon’s Talk & Take Action: Anti-Hate Guides series, which seeks to empower kids with tools, information, and inspiration to help them navigate their world.
“We are thrilled to partner with a worldwide brand for children and parents who also have a strong social conscious in Nickelodeon along with our friends at KID Museum in developing a guide for educators, parents and children to increase the understanding, appreciation and respect for the Latinx community,” said Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of Hispanic Heritage Foundation. “We understand the importance of breaking the cycle of discrimination and hate in our world and any movement starts with youth, but also the adults that influence them. We applaud Nickelodeon’s vision and leadership in offering these resources.”
“We urgently need to give kids better tools to move the needle as culture makers and changemakers of the future,” said Cara Lesser, Founder and Executive Director of KID Museum. “That’s why we’re proud to team up with Nickelodeon and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation as part of Nickelodeon’s ‘Talk and Take Action Campaign,’ to give teachers and families tangible, hands-on ways to combat hate and promote social change.”

August is National Inventors' Month! Our Build-a-Bot program with KID Museum at Long Branch continues today. Young inventors will learn how a circuit works, make their own simple circuit using a motor & use that skill to create their own simple moving robots, or wiggle bots!
At this pivotal moment in education, we have the opportunity to reimagine learning as never before. To help our community advocate effectively and promote Invention Education opportunities, KID Museum partnered with Nation of Makers, with the support of The Lemelson Foundation, to create the InventEd Field Guide.
This comprehensive resource provides data, stories, key messages, as well as practical strategies to build momentum and promote opportunities for all learners.
USG Executive Director Dr. Anne Khademian was on WJLA 7News DC's "Good Morning Washington" this morning with
John Gonzalez 7News, discussing the return to campus. WJLA was also here to feature a KID Museum summer inventing workshop program for middle school students, held at USG.
Wake up early with USG tomorrow, August 5! We look forward to welcoming WJLA 7News DC to feature both USG and the KID Museum summer inventing workshops on campus. Watch "Good Morning Washington" between 5:30-7:00 a.m. on channel 7 or at https://wjla.com/watch.
Any chance Mini Makers will be back this year?
