Explore all of Maymont’s new educational field investigation offerings at an Educator Open House. This year, Maymont offers an enriched experience for educational field investigations to all Richmond-area teachers. Come see the new learning spaces, meet the educators, and sample the programs, hands-on experiences and interactive learning tools for environmental science, history and social studies. Interdisciplinary options are available, and all programs meet Virginia Standards of Learning and national common core requirements.

Teachers of all grade levels from K–12 in public, private or home schools are welcome. 

Agenda

  • Tour the new education spaces: Active Learning Classroom in the Stone Barn, the updated “In Domestic Service” exhibition space and The Robins Nature Center
  • Every half hour, watch a presentation by one of Maymont’s educators in environmental/life science and Gilded Age/Jim Crow history
  • Interact with the educators and see how the programs combine active learning across disciplines and Standards of Learning alignments
  • Enjoy refreshments in the Stone Barn Welcome Center and The Robins Nature Center
  • Pick up some Maymont materials to use in your classroom
  • Sign up for school visits and ask logistical questions
