TAKE PART IN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH

Fort Worth Museum of Science and History's Research and Learning Center aims to immerse Museum guests in the scientific discovery process as it brings researchers into the Innovation Studios to share their research with the public. Museum guests will have opportunities to learn from these scientists as they participate in current research studies, discuss research with the scientists and find out how the research impacts their day-to-day lives.

For over 66 years, Museum School has been a leader in informal science education. Whether the topic is dinosaurs, space, mammals, chemistry or physics, class curriculums and explorations are designed so that students can construct their own knowledge of the world through hands-on experiences. The engaging environments are supported by specimens and artifacts from the Museum’s teaching collection, creative materials, and an enthusiastic teaching staff that supports the process and joy of learning through discovery.

Museum School offers many exciting learning opportunities for school-age children who attend a traditional public or private school or who are home schooled. These informal, discovery-based classes feature various science and history topics enriched with Museum specimens and artifacts (where appropriate to the subject), creative activities, science investigations and other hands-on explorations.

Classes will be offered on various Fridays and Saturdays in October, November and December. Click here or on the above link to download the Fall 2017 Museum School class brochure which has the schedule, class descriptions, fees and the registration instructions and form.
