Access and Inclusion

The Friends is committed to working with the City to make the JMZ accessible and welcoming to all. To that end, we have several projects in the works, including supporting the JMZ to provide reduced-priced admission, which we are excited to share more about soon.

Science Outreach Program

The Friends funds the JMZ’s Science Outreach Program in the Ravenswood City School District and East Palo Alto Charter School (EPACS), ensuring that students in East Palo Alto and eastern Menlo Park receive exceptional, engaging science programming, right in their classrooms. In school year 2021-2022, the program served over 1,500 students with 400+ in-person lessons in Ravenswood elementary schools and EPACS.

Super Family Sundays

Super Family Sundays are special events for families who have children with disabilities. These events are free and provide exclusive access to the JMZ in a calm and friendly environment.
