Helping teachers to inspire learning
On occasion, we provide programs in which K–12 and pre-service teachers can:
- learn about the Museum's education programs
- experience some of the activities
- discuss curriculum links
- explore galleries
- preview exhibitions
If you'd like to discuss a custom program, you are welcome to contact the Education section.
One good way to keep up with programs we offer is to subscribe to our blog. See below for the latest posts related to professional learning.
