To support students and parents as schools implement hybrid models to address COVID-19, The Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) is offering a recurring academic day program.
These day programs will provide an opportunity for supervised homework and remote schoolwork time with MOST education staff, museum exploration, and STEAM projects, games, and activities.
“We designed this program to engage students and supplement the academic efforts of teachers – all in an environment where parents can feel confident that their kids are learning safely,” said Dr. Emily Stewart, Director of Education and Programming and leader of STEAM Camps at the MOST.
The program will be offered from 9 AM – 3 PM, one day per week (Monday through Friday), for 13 weeks beginning September 14 through the week of December 14 (except Thanksgiving week). There will be 10 campers allotted per age group (ages 4-7 and ages 8-12) to enforce safe distancing between students, and for an enhanced educational experience.
“The MOST has always been an incredible educational resource for science since we were the Discovery Center back on Clinton Street,” said Lauren Kochian, President of the MOST. “Since the recent pandemic, we have pivoted in multiple directions to continue to provide that same excellent level of education and engaging fun while meeting the unique needs of schools and families – from virtual exhibits and programs to a summer dedicated to day camp.”
Kochian continues, “Now we are excited to fulfill our mission in yet another way by offering a unique educational option for students and their busy parents as they navigate through the challenges of hybrid schools.”
Registration will open on Thursday, August 13 for members and Thursday, August 20 for the general public. Link for more information: https://www.most.org/learn/.
The program cost will be $600 for a full 13-week session, one-day per week. After-care will be available for an additional fee. Members receive a 10 percent discount.
