The Newark Museum can be a resource by offering programs which take place in your classroom.
Museum educators can come to your classroom with touchable objects and visual media to teach science, art, and astronomy. The outreach programs are also available for after school programs and clubs. These programs are designed to address the NJ Curriculum Standards and the Common Core Standards, and are intended for classroom sizes of 25 students.

Virtual Field Trips
Newark Museum galleries are wired for distance learning/videoconferencing technology. Web-based ‘webinars’ can also be organized. Students and teachers can visit the Museum without leaving school, using these ‘real-time’ electronic interactions—essentially ‘virtual field trips’
Connect to the museum via the internet as an educator videostreams a program. Each live 60–minute session with a Newark Museum educator includes a range of activities that you can adapt for students. Participants must have access to a computer with high-speed Internet access. A headset with built-in microphone, or a laptop computer with built-in microphone, is recommended for full participation; however, these features are not required to run a webinar. The Museum uses Ellumniate to implement its webinars—you do not need special software, although you might need Java installed.
