Montshire at Home: Virtual Workshop Series

M@H: Virtual Workshop Series is a multi-week virtual learning program, designed to engage learners in hands-on inquiry at home. Participants each receive a kit of uniquely chosen materials and supplies that support weekly inquiry-based activities focused on a STEM content theme. Montshire Educators provide live, on-screen engagement, where children are encouraged to share in their learning process and make discoveries with fellow learners, as well as weekly activities and prompts for off-screen exploration and extension of learning.

Program Features
Pre-registration at least 7 days in advance of program start date. Kits for pre-registered families will be available for pick up at the Museum Store of Montshire Museum of Science 7 days prior to the program start date. During the workshop, a Museum Educator will lead learners through activities via Zoom. Zoom links will be sent to registered participants a few days prior to the workshop.

  • Weekly live on-screen engagement
  • Weekly Thematic Inquiry-Based STEM Activities & Extensions for off-screen exploration
  • A comprehensive kit of materials*, bundled by session, for learners to unpack and discover each week; designed to support learners’ full engagement in each activity
