Outreach Programs

Putnam outreach programs are engaging, unforgettable learning experiences that happen right in the classroom! Museum educators bring artifacts, experiments and enthusiasm to your class for a lively presentation that is sure to spark the imagination and lead to deeper learning.

For more information on all of our outreach programs please contact Reba Pierson at rpierson@putnam.org or 563-336-7297.
