What Museums and Science Centers
Many museums have broad, updated resources that some schools do not have.
They often also offer informal, interactive activities that complement
local course curriculum. They offer a non-threatening, friendly environment where adults and
students can explore without fear of being wrong, or admitting what they
Some museums and
science centers also offer weekend or
summer programs for precollege students, and some also offer programs
for teachers, including lesson plans and activities for use in the
classroom. Many offer hands on experiences for exploring science,
mathematics, engineering, computing, healthcare, and medicine or health
applications. The following are some examples in Florida -- be sure
