The Children’s Discovery Museum is partnering with Illinois State University’s Center for Mathematics, Science, and Technology for the first annual Pushcart Derby. Teams of youth (3rd – 8th grade) will begin with a workshop led by ISU and museum educators. Implementing principles of the design process and science, technology, engineering, art, and math teams will construct unique muscle carts. The teams will then test their designs and race to the finish in the road course derby. Construction supplies will be provided, and prizes will be awarded to the winning team. All you have to bring is your love of learning and plenty of muscle power! If you don’t have a team of friends to join you for the fun, you can register individually and we will match you with other creators and engineers participating in the event.

 

Proceeds from the fundraising event will support the museum’s mission—enabling the expansion of programs, creation of exhibits, continuation of outreach initiatives, and scholarship provision for disadvantaged youth.

Known for its unique rappelling fundraising events around the world and helping organizations raise millions of dollars, Over The Edge is coming to Peoria! This inaugural event supports Peoria Friendship House as they minister to the community and work to alleviate the burdens of poverty. Individuals and teams are invited to witness a riverfront view like none other, by earning a spot to rappel off the Chase Bank building in downtown Peoria. Every person who raises a minimum of $1,000 will secure a spot as an edger. The sky is the limit with fundraising, but not required to participate. If nerves take over, donors can join the fun in our VIP Chicken Coop.

 

To wrap up a day of fun, we invite all edgers and chickens alike to stick around for the Edge Peoria party to celebrate the families and individuals that will receive services because of your support. Hope to see you there!
