For Schools and Teachers

Whether it’s providing engaging experiences for students or a professional development workshop for teachers, at the Montshire Museum of Science, our mission is to forge and empower lifelong learners through engagement with science. Our education programs and exhibits awaken and encourage lifelong interest in science through dedicated hands-on discovery and learning for students and educators.

Through programs designed to meet the emergent needs of teachers and students, we strive to support and strengthen opportunities for science learning with schools & teachers throughout the region. Whether it’s through virtual science workshops with your students, professional development for teachers, family engagement, or opportunities to collaborate with fellow-science educators and experts, the Montshire is here to support you and your students throughout the school year.
