Museum Outreach

Bring the award-winning museum programs to you!

Each program is designed to enhance and enrich science learning at your site, whether it’s in a classroom, scout meeting, afterschool program, senior center, fundraising event, or community festival. Every program is carefully tailored to the appropriate age level and, where applicable, is aligned with national and Pennsylvania academic standards to help support your educational goals. Our programs are designed to be inclusive resulting in a rewarding outcome for all learners of all ages. They can be adapted to community centers and hospital settings as well as other individual or group settings for those with physical and cognitive impairments. We are happy to work with you to adapt our programs to the needs of your group.
