The common element throughout our Mission Statement, Vision and project proposal is to provide education for all ages. While the more formal programs and classes may be focused on K-12 children, our goal is for all ages to benefit from the museum and the programs and activities we will offer.
A dedicated educational program will be defined, planned and staffed when the museum is closer to opening, under the guidance of a degreed education staff member(s) and our education partners. We will require our exhibit designers to coordinate with local education partners to work towards exhibits and displays that meet classroom objectives for various age groups. Formal classes, activities or the experience of the museum itself will be a carefully curated process. Working with our education partners, we will work towards Dual Enrollment, Career Technical Agriculture Education (CTAE) Pathway completion and certifications.
Kids camps, hands-on activities, visiting authors and veterans, reenactors, themed events, etc. are all potential programs that will be organized when the timing is appropriate, and funding is in place.
We are currently raising funds to develop an online portal to deliver the programming virtually in the classroom or at the student's home.
The inspiring real-world stories, with embedded grade-level appropriate Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) math and science curriculum, enable students to immerse themselves in the action by solving problems along with the heroes in the stories. Additionally, students will be expanding their vocabulary, improving critical thinking, and practicing crucial brainstorming and teamwork skills, as well as getting a glimpse of future career opportunities with ASPIRE.
