Roberson Museum and Science Center
Grades: K-12
The Roberson Educational Partnership Program allows your district access to educational resources that only museums and science centers can offer. These invaluable experiences engage students in an environment that supports inquisitive and exploratory learning. By investing in this partnership, you will be able to help classroom teachers better understand the value of museum experiences and their direct benefit to students by having one of Roberson's educators attend a staff meeting prior to a visit. This package is designed to connect teachers more closely with museum program design and delivery as well as integrate class trips with classroom activities.

This package is valued at $7,500 and will be offered this year for $5,000. It specifically includes: 15 educational class trips to Roberson, 3 outreach programs, 1 staff meeting to furnish program information. Additional services are also included; please contact Andrea Decker ( for details.
