In Classroom Program Descriptions

The Bruce Museum offers in-classroom programs for preschool through high school students during which trained educators bring object’s from the Museum’s teaching collection to you and your students. Instructors engage students through inquiry-based discussions and close observation of collection objects.  All programs correspond to NGSS and Common Core standards and learning objectives.
