WE ASPIRE TO INSPIRE

The Education Department

The Science Museum of Western Virginia is more than just a museum. We have a dedicated team of trained education specialists who develop and deliver educational programs to students throughout the New River Valley.

We reach more students than any other organization in our area through school field trips to the museum and Outreach Programs, where we meet students in their own classrooms. Whatever the environment, we pride ourselves on developing young minds in any setting.
