In Your Classroom

Let the Museum come to you! For more than 40 years, we’ve delivered hands-on, standards-aligned, and inquiry-based programming to classrooms, libraries, camps, and community centers.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our programs are limited to virtual offerings. We look forward to reopening in-person programs when it is safe to do so.
