Learning takes place in formal classroom settings and in informal environments where opportunities to learn are sometimes episodic, occasional and even accidental. They can come in a museum, a park, a zoo, on television, in computer games, or through a cell phone. We explore these environments to find new ideas that will engage children in very active ways and create an opportune moment to learn something new.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation was established by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. The Kauffman Foundation's vision is to foster "a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities." In service of this vision, and in keeping with our founder's wishes, we focus our grant making and operations on two areas: advancing entrepreneurship and improving the education of children and youth.
