Hunter Education Fellows STEAM Workshop for K-12 Educators

This workshop and accompanying fellowship were developed to facilitate deeper, more integrated learning opportunities for area school children through hands-on teacher training and resources. Teachers participating in this workshop will develop materials to be used in the classroom and will receive additional resources from the museum. By participating in this workshop, educators will become museum fellows and will have access to continued enrichment sessions as well as the opportunity to showcase student work in a studio hall gallery show and to attend a culminating reception at the end of the semester.
