Little Scholars Program
The Little Scholars Program: Summer Session is focused on reigniting students' love of learning within a safe, immersive learning environment for grades 1st – 5th.
Daily tutoring lessons combined with exploration of museum exhibits, visits to the STEAM Lab, and trips to other museums in the cultural district will help prevent the summer slide and bridge the COVID learning gap.
Certified teachers help students navigate their learning in small pods, based on grade.
Classes meet Monday through Friday beginning at 8 AM and ending at 3 PM.
Ensuring student safety by maintaining social distancing and proper sanitization measures while also providing extraordinary learning enrichment, is a top priority of the FWMSH Little Scholars Program.
Enrolled students will be organized into “pods” of ten, based on grade and home campus. Each pod will have a teacher and an assistant to facilitate their course work. Creative experiences, observations, and interactions with the Museum’s vast teaching collection of scientific specimens and historic artifacts, visits to Museum exhibits and the Noble Planetarium and more, will also be included in a typical week.
Transportation to and from the Museum will be provided on a need basis (based on proximity of student’s home to the Museum). Breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be provided daily by the Museum’s Stars Café.
A $50 application fee is charged for applicants who are not members of the Museum. The full program runs four weeks, for a total of $900. Scholarships are available!
