School Programs 

Education Assistants

The Army Women's Museum recently received a grant from the Cameron Foundation to expand and enhance its schools programs.

Our new Education Specialist and team of Education Assistants have worked hard to provide quality programs that support the classroom teacher.

For the 2008-2009 school year the museum will have had over 6,000 students participate in its educational programs.

The U.S. Army Women's Museum has unique and exciting hands-on programs for grades K-12. These programs are designed to enhance and support the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL). The programs at the Museum will give each student an opportunity to learn by touching, feeling, seeing, and hearing. They will utilize critical thinking skills to investigate and explore various topics. The experience will also give students a better understanding and appreciation of history.

These programs were developed by a team of educators, historians, and curators. The program is delivered by a highly qualified educator and assistants that allows for small group work. A program can be tailored to the needs of the teacher and/or school, to include content, length, number of participants, and location.

Presentation of these programs is conducted in the classroom and exhibit gallery at the museum.
