Traveling Science

The Museum of Science in Boston has an exciting resource for teachers in New England. The museum has a traveling science program that is designed to support the learning goals of the Massachusetts standards for K-2, 3-5, 6-8. They offer small group programs for a classroom of about 16-50 students per session and school assembly programs suitable for 100-200 students. The programs are divided into grade-specific subject areas, and due to larger equipment the assembly program is able to capture a larger audience through increased visibility. One of the hands-on programs that teachers can look forward to is “Dig into Dinosaurs” for PreK-2 students. This program allows students to be a paleontologist for a day by interacting with real fossils, studying a simulated dinosaur trackway, testing their thoughts on how it came to be, and excavating a replica field site. Last year, the traveling science program traveled over 55,000 miles to more than 850 cities. It has also expanded by adding a fifth van, having more full-time educators on the staff, and adding a new geology workshop.  The Museum of Science in Boston is bringing science to the classroom and bringing it to life!
