INSTRUCTIONAL CLASSROOM PROGRAMS
MCM was built with a mission to improve the health and literacy of Mississippi’s children because the two go hand-in-hand. The hands-on programs we offer at MCM involve children in making good choices in a fun and interactive way, which is the best way for them to remember what they’ve learned. Our interactive, multi-disciplinary programs make concepts introduced and developed in the classroom come alive in our thematic galleries. Our programs are based in three focus areas, health, literacy, and STEAM.
All programs are an additional $3.00 per student unless otherwise noted.
MEETING YOUR OBJECTIVES
Connecting to state and national standards in literacy, STEAM, and health is MCM’s specialty. The Education and Programs Department at MCM strives to make each experience fun while providing children with substantive material that enhances the standards that are tested in Mississippi’s assessment programs. Each field trip, outreach program, and professional development opportunity is immersed in educational concepts. Allowing children to make connections to these standards in an informal learning environment reinforces what they are learning in the classroom in a hands-on, tactile way that no child will forget.
If you can’t visit MCM or you’ve visited and want to share the experience with more students, our hands-on educational experiences at your school, church, camp, or special event are the perfect solution. Most MCM programs are offered for outreach visits, in addition to our traveling exhibits. Contact our education coordinator at 601-709-8962 for available programs and pricing.
