The Nature of Science Classroom Outreach Program
If you can’t make it to The Bishop, or you want to extend your students’ learning with a pre- or post-field trip program, our Outreach Programs are a great way to bring the Museum’s resources directly to your group!
Our Classroom Outreach Programs are designed for small-group inquiry. Using Museum objects and activities, we deep-dive with your group into Museum-inspired topics.
We are always expanding our topic selection– let us know what you are looking for!
Currently available themes:
What is a Museum? – Why do we have museums? How does one get started? What is in a museum? What is a collection? Have you ever collected anything? Ask your museum expert all these questions and more! We will even bring some cool museum objects, like fossils and artifacts, to help us answer.
Our Solar System – What makes up our star system? Let’s learn more about the true size, scale, and structure of the Solar System through models and movement!
Manatees and their Environment – Learn about the elusive and mysterious mammal that is a favorite and staple of our Florida waters! Explore where manatees fit within our ecosystem, their diet and food behaviors, and how The Bishop performs our rehabilitation and care of manatees.
