What Museums and Science Centers Offer

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 don't know.

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 New York -- be sure to see what resources they have for you!
