Education

Studies indicate the importance of field-based learning in order to provide students with substantive “real-world” learning opportunities where they can gain hands-on experience from professional experts. The Phippen Museum offers history-based guided tours from trained docent leaders, studio art activities led by certified art teachers and trail hikes where students engage in an outdoor classroom exploring local geography, geology, and the ecology of the region. Museum educators work closely with classroom teachers to develop learning targets that correspond with STEM initiatives and Common Core curriculum standards.
