The IMMERSE program at the Putnam Museum & Science Center provides a week long, immersive, in house learning experience for students in the Quad City area. While at the Putnam, teachers will cover all of their regular subjects weaving the Putnam’s wide-ranging resources and expertise into their lesson plans. This provides authentic, participatory learning experiences that really drive lessons home for all learners. The strength of this educational program is that the teachers and students use the Museum as their classroom and the artifacts, exhibits and films as their textbooks.

Throughout their Putnam IMMERSE experience, students will develop important 21st century thinking and learning skills, work cooperatively on research and writing, develop communication skills as they question and interact with Putnam curators and other staff, utilize critical problem solving skills and have the opportunity to innovate! IMMERSE will facilitate a high-impact learning experience unachievable in a regular classroom environment.
