Using a real world scenario, visitors and students will gain new skills in Geography, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (G-STEM) through high-tech, simulated Army training.
Scheduled groups will move to the Learning Lab to work collaboratively and utilize their new skills to help the Army respond to a humanitarian crisis, Operation Safe Passage, facilitated by Museum educators. This experience must be scheduled in advance.
Online registration for groups to experience the ELC will be available in Spring 2020.
The Programs and Education Division offers annual Teacher Institutes. These professional development opportunities focus on content, teaching methodology and learning theory. Designed for elementary, middle and high school social studies and history teachers, these institutes increase participants’ knowledge of Army history and familiarize teachers with Museum resources. Presenters include authors, historians and Museum staff who provide in-depth historical background and strategies for the classroom.
Please check back for information about our next Teacher Institute, which will be posted here as it is scheduled.
Come explore Army history with other homeschoolers. Homeschool Days offer a variety of activities for visitors of all ages. Our first homeschool event will be held in Fall 2020. Please check back here in Summer 2020 for more information.
