For Schools and Teachers

At Montshire Museum of Science, our mission is to awaken and encourage a lifelong interest in science through exhib­its and programming dedicated to hands-on discovery and learning.

Cultivating a love for science can happen anywhere. 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 this school year.
