Education

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 museum tours, outreach programs, and online learning opportunities are also great for non-school youth groups, such as Scout troops, religious groups, social service agencies, and after-school programs.
