Welcome to Your New Classroom

The North Museum of Nature and Science is opening its doors to children whose schools offer only half-day classes or are entirely virtual.

Certified teachers and highly educated facilitators will facilitate student learning as children attend virtual classes provided by their own schools. Parents will attend a virtual meeting with a member of their child’s educational team prior to their start date, resulting in a customized individual learning plan for each student. Parents will also receive daily updates on their child’s learning activities and progress. With teacher/student ratios estimated to be 2 educator/facilitators to every 5 – 7 students, the program will be a real boon for all children, especially those who struggle to learn virtually and for parents who are now facing critical education and child-care needs as schools close their doors.

What Is School @ North Museum?

Certified teachers and highly educated facilitators will facilitate student learning as children attend virtual classes provided by their own schools.

Blending the museum’s expertise in informal and experiential learning with a facilitated virtual classroom experience, School @ North Museum offers a co-op or camp-like feel, marrying virtual school with science-based, in-person learning with no, low and tech options. Students will have the opportunity to participate in STEAM career exploratory programs, Lego League, Ask A Scientist programming and more.

School @ North Museum also offers children an opportunity to socialize in a healthy and safe environment during the pandemic. CDC protocols are already successfully in place at the museum, meaning masks are mandatory, and social distancing measures will continue to be enforced, along with temperature taking at the entrance and other protocols. But kids will be around other kids — safely.
