Discovery Museum Launches Its 3rd Hands-on STEM Distance Learning Resource
Thousands of trainees and their instructors have actually gotten involved in the Museums live virtual STEM workshops this school year. Virtual Traveling Science Workshops are live-streamed, hands-on workshops led by the Museums experienced STEM trainers.
” Its so crucial to get hands-on STEM explorations to trainees, and with the obstacles schools are facing this academic year we desired to make certain to support that,” said Jill Foster, director of school and group programs. “We are delighted to be able to supplement teachers educational plans and supply fun, hands-on, material-rich, state curriculum-aligned STEM expeditions that are worthy replacement for the in-classroom workshops we would generally provide and the check outs to the Museum that classes would typically take. Teachers and students do not need to miss out on out on their favorite STEM expeditions due to COVID– and these new resources will support trainee learning far beyond this academic year.”
Discovery Museum revealed today the launch of its Feel the Force laboratory toolkit, the very first offering in a brand-new item series for K-5 remote knowing called School trip on Trip. Excursion on Tour is the Museums 3rd special range finding out offering launched because the COVID crisis hit, all established to offer hands-on STEM expedition for trainees both in your home and in the classroom.
Themed around the scientific residential or commercial properties of force and motion, the new Field Trip on Tour: Feel the Force laboratory toolkit supplies all the materials, prompts, and directions students require for hours of expedition of the everyday science, mathematics, and engineering that surrounds them. It includes seven hands-on STEM expeditions to prompt in-depth experimentation in the house, in the classroom, or both. The material links to grades K to 5 curricula, supporting MA Science and Technology/Engineering Standards. The toolkits are readily available to order now at an initial cost, for Spring 2021 student knowing.
Expeditions are themed around the science behind popular Museum shows and school programs– students can try their hand at structure mini shows, check out simple makers, test chemical responses, and more. They are readily available for free on the Museums site.
About Discovery Museum
Discovery Museum is a hands-on museum that mixes science, nature, and play, motivating households to explore and find out together. The museum and its Discovery Woods accessible outdoor nature playscape and 550sf treehouse mix the very best of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning on a lovely 4.5-acre campus abutting 180 acres of preservation land in Acton, MA, about 20 miles west of Boston. Originally founded in 1982 and broadened to 2 museums in 1987, the museum reopened in a single, 16,000 sf accessible building after a complete restoration and growth in early 2018. Hands-on, open-ended exhibitions established by expert teachers inspire curiosity and expedition, providing a fun and appealing experience for grownups and kids to discover their world together. Serving families and schools from towns throughout the area, the museum is committed to informal education that enhances class learning. Discovery Museum is committed to accessibility and is a happy recipient of the 2017 Massachusetts Commonwealth Award, the only winner in the Access category, and a 2018 LEAD ® Community Asset Award from The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. For additional information please go to www.discoveryacton.org. Discovery Museum is a community-supported non-profit organization.
Discovery Museum programming is supported in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state company.
