Join Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center educators for a two-day program exploring objects with young to very young children. Together we’ll discover the rich learning opportunities afforded by the objects around us in museums, libraries, kitchens, and the local park.
This program features hands-on, object-based exercises, gallery visits, guided discussions, and presentations from educators and artists. Our staff will present information drawn from SEEC’s 25 years of learning with children in museums in combination with research on the science of learning to provide educators with models for more creative encounters with objects in and out of museums.
Come join us at the Smithsonian for a boost of inspiration or continuing education credits for DC teachers (or both!). Together we’ll stretch our thinking and explore some fabulous objects.
