CME 360


We are so excited for our new CME 360 program! This new program will offer Museum educational programming to in person, online and in the community to support schools and other educational spaces. All of our programming is designed for active participation and inquiry based learning. These learning experiences are built on the Museum's dedication to engaging hands-on education!

Our STEM programs align with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and QRIS Standards.

We have 4 programs to choose from based on the need for in-person or virtual educational activities. Consecutive programs (held on the same day) are discounted.
