Learning for Students

People of all ages experience hands-on learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math during Museum Public Programs like Creative Science and Mobile Learning. In addition, teachers can arrange one-of-a-kind experiences for their students either inside the classroom with Exhibits-To-Go or inside the Museum with Field Trip Workshops that meet current content standards.
