We offer hands-on and engaging K-12 programs at the Museum, in your classroom, or through distance learning. Our programs highlight objects from our collection bringing history and civics to life for students. Our team of museum educators receive extensive training on best practices for engaging students to ensure that your students have a memorable museum experience.
All of our educational programs have been designed to meet the goals and objectives of the Connecticut Elementary and Secondary Social Studies Frameworks and Common Core State Standards. Our programs are inquiry-based and help develop skills in close observation, evidential reasoning, and critical thinking. Our educational programs are also great for non-school youth groups, such as Scout troops, religious groups, social service agencies, and after-school programs.
