FALL MUSEUM SCHOOL CLASSES

 Museum School offers informal discovery-based science and history classes that are enriched with topic-appropriate specimens or artifacts from the Museum's teaching collections, creative activities, science investigations and other hands-on explorations.

The fall session will begin mid-October and will include several Friday classes for home-school students, ages 7-10 by September 1, 2016 (must currently in second through fifth grade.) Friday homeschool classes feature an engineering-based STEM format, designed around different science topics. In addition, Saturday classes for children in kindergarten through fourth grade will also be open to age/grade eligible homeschool students. 

The Museum School class brochure - with the class schedule, descriptions, registration instructions and the registration form - will be posted on the website in late September. Registrations will be accepted as soon as the brochure posts. For more information, email mgabbard@fwmsh.org.

 


 

 

TAKE PART IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's Research and Learning Center aims to immerse museum guests in the scientific discovery process as it brings researchers into the Innovation Studios to share their research with the public. Museum guests will have opportunities to learn from these scientists as they participate in current research studies, discuss research with the scientists, and find out how the research impacts their day-to-day lives.

Visit http://fortworthmuseum.org/rlc-current-research to learn about September and October's studies.

For more information, or to schedule at time, contact Debbie at dcockerham@fwmsh.org.
