Program Details


1. The program will begin with an introduction by a museum staff member (a curator if available).
2. 2-3 artifacts will be presented that relate to the topic chosen, as staff asks students what they have learned or hope to learn about the topic.
3. Time for questions will be allowed at the end.


Objectives will vary based on the topic chosen. The goal of the program is to relate museum objects and the work we do to preserve them to topics students are already learning about in the classroom.
