Our youth education programming encourages students to uncover history in their everyday lives. Programs connect local history across disciplines in the classroom through investigation, research, creation and connection. We offer both site-based and remote programming for classroom educators or local families. Come to the museum and you might investigate archival photos, discover trends in local natural history or engineer irrigation for homesteading cabins.
In addition, many of our Archaeology courses can be brought into your classroom or facility. Archaeology is a multidisciplinary field that can be integrated into almost any curriculum. If you are interested in having us visit your class, please feel free to contact us regarding any of our set programs, or to build a custom course.
- INVESTIGATE – Students will use archives and museum objects to critically investigate aspects of local Jackson Hole history and its relationship to the nation/world.
