For Educators

Quality programming across a variety of topics

Presented at your location or here at the museum!

Try a field trip or group visit (consider a Discovery Monday)! We specialize in programming for children, preschool through Grade 6. Our educators are knowledgeable, child-centered and teach from an inquiry based perspective. Programs incorporate hands-on authentic activities that offer discovery, play and wonder to children about the world around them. Whether you are exploring a topic in a preschool class, looking for some added fun to a camp/afterschool activity/party, or trying to satisfy Connecticut Science Standards, we have something for everyone.

Outreach Programs

Programs are aligned to the Connecticut Science Standards, but can easily be adapted to fit ANY grade level!

To book a program, contact our education coordinator at 860-691-1111 or via email.


Pricing (based on locations within New London County) is $150 per program, $125 for each additional same day program unless otherwise indicated. Outside New London County, please call for pricing. Mileage is an additional charge to all programming. Discounts available for multiple bookings.
