While we are reminded that the pandemic is not over, things have returned much closer to ‘normal’. This meant that tours were once again being booked at the museum. We did have one school come for a tour in fall, but this spring tours came back strong, and we could not be happier! We saw about 25 different schools come for tours, some brought multiple classes as well. Overall we saw over 500 students along with their teachers and other chaperones tour the museum! We thoroughly enjoyed having the museum filled with eager and inquisitive youngsters. We want to thank all the teachers who have shown such dedication over the trials of the pandemic, we hope you all enjoyed your tours and we wish you a well deserved summer break. We also had several teachers testing out our new BCATP learning kit, and we appreciate your feedback as well. We hope to have the kit our for wider distribution next school year. Teachers and Principals, if you want to learn more about this kit, let us know. Also consider booking a fall tour! Field trips are always exciting for students and do not have to occur in spring (I know, I was a teacher and took field trips at all times of the year!) Teachers – also check out our Education page for some links and games.
So – once again, thank you to all teachers, but a special thanks to those who came to the museum for a tour! Enjoy summer!
A final note – we did have a few adult groups in as well! We can do tours for any age group any time of year!
