The Marian Koshland Science Museum in Washington, DC offers an interactive learning experience specifically designed for teenagers and adults, including supplemental teaching materials and school field trips.
The museum has identified unique, inquiry-based activities related to its Global Warming and DNA exhibits that are designed for middle and high-school students and adhere to the National Academies’ National Science Education Standards.
The Koshland Science Museum will offer structured field trips for middle and high school classes beginning in the 2004-2005 school year. Students choose to focus on either global warming or DNA then divide into teams to explore the museum’s exhibits. Afterward, students participate in a peer-teaching exercise that culminates in a whole class discussion focused on a specific question.
