Children’s Museums “Exhibit” Educational Outreach

Bafile, C. (2009). Children’s Museums “Exhibit” Educational Outreach. Retrieved October 10, 2009 from Educational World. http://www.education-world.com/a_curr/profdev/profdev169.shtml

This article was exciting for me to stumble across. My school has a partnership with the Rueben H. Fleet Science Center. The Fleet is an amazing resource for teachers and schools. Museums are not only a place for classrooms to visit on a field trip but a place where teachers can check out educational learning kits, units of study, and online resources. Most teachers are unaware that their local children’s museums can be so helpful. This article gave many examples of how museums are getting involved with schools in their area. Boston’s Children’s Museum, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, The Kid’s Space Museum, and The Children’s Museum and Theatre of Maine are leading the way with their school outreach programs.
