MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation (125 State St.) is offering new educational programming to benefit teachers and students.
Local parents can register their children for a unique afterschool program focused on digital creativity, as well as an Innovators Camp scheduled for the week of Thanksgiving break.
Educators throughout Santa Barbara and Ventura counties are granted free admission to MOXI! They are encouraged to visit and experience MOXI’s hands-on, interactive exhibits for themselves to get inspiration for hands-on activities in their classrooms.
Teachers can register their classes for field trips at a discounted rate with an optional facilitated Engineering Design program add-on. These one-hour lessons implement the Next Generation Science Standards.
“Through our engineering design programs, we hope to engage students, and inspire teachers to implement similar lessons in their classrooms. We’ve heard from teachers in the community…they are hungry for new ideas to meet the demands of the NGSS. MOXI wants to be a trusted resource and partner for them,” says Ron Skinner, director of education at MOXI.
MOXI is also offering afterschool classes in digital creativity through a collaboration with Katy Perry’s Fireworks Foundation. To learn more about MOXI’s school year offerings, please visit moxi.org, or call 805/770-5012.
