Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

C'mon aims to: 1) increase the number of students, children, and their families able to attend the Museum and Museum programs; 2) increase the number of students, children and families exposure to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, cultures, art, and health and wellness; 3) increase students, children and families interest in and knowledge of the above concepts by providing outreach opportunities for C'mon programs, new programming implementing new educational trends (i.e. the Maker Movement); and 4) challenge students, children and families of all ages to spark a love for life-long learning by encouraging curiosity.

Increase the educational components and exhibits to appeal to all age groups of children.

The educational team uses their knowledge and continuing professional development to bring new and innovate programs and exhibits to C'mon.

Since opening the Museum doors in 2012, more than 28,000 school children have attended field trips and more than 412,000 visitors have experienced C’mon. In addition, the Museum has over 100 devoted volunteers, with one already reaching over 1,000 volunteer hours! C’mon attracts both local and international visitors. 89.6% of guests are from Florida, and 27.1% come from outside the county. Our guests represent how diverse the Southwest Florida area is, (roughly 35% minorities made up of 26.5% Hispanic, 7% African American, 1% Asian and .5% Native American). About 60% of children in our area come from low-income families and only half speak English in their home. C’mon is committed to providing access to any child regardless of ability or financial means. In June 2012, C’mon debuted the Library Access Pass program at all public libraries in Lee and Collier County. The Access Pass allows library patrons to check out a Museum pass for one Museum visit, for up to 6 visitors. Since inception, 5,455 people have attended the Museum free of charge on an Access Pass. The passes are so popular that there are currently 332 holds on the passes in the library system. We are actively pursuing funds to subsidize other program fees to include Camps, Shelter Nights, Sensory Nights, Young Family Foundations, Curious Kids afterschool, Junior Mentor, Teen Intern, and professional development for teachers and staff.
