River of Innovation Awarded $5,000

The Dubuque County Historical Society was awarded $5,000 in funding from the IBM Corporate Citizenship Community Grants Program. Funding will support a solid framework for the development of integrated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum for the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium’s new permanent exhibit River of Innovation, which will include a fully-functional 19th century belt-driven machine shop, maker space, and other hands-on exhibits. The permanent exhibit is slated to open in early 2020.
