Outreach Programs

Putnam outreach programs are engaging, unforgettable learning experiences that happen right in the classroom! Museum educators bring artifacts, experiments and enthusiasm (and the occasional hissing cockroach!) 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 call (563) 324-1933.
