Education and Outreach

Here at the Sternberg Museum, we believe in our motto of Excitement in Education through Exploration.  As part of our mission of the Museum, the education department focuses on engaging learning opportunities in the Earth and life science. Almost all of our educational programs and activities provide children and adults with a chance to get hands-on with science, engaging the learners in everyone.

Join us on your next visit to the Museum and get hands-on in the Discovery Room or join us for one of our many monthly programs.  Are you an educator or a parent looking for fun and exciting educational activities to do with your classroom, group, or children?  Look no further to find the excitement in education from programs, tours, and activities under the dome, on the road, or on the nature trails.  We offer exciting day and residential summer camp programs for 1st-12th grade students, and science-themed travel programs for adults aged 21 and over. We appreciate your interest in the educational programs at the Sternberg Museum. For questions, contact the Education Manager Ian Trevethan at
