In 2021, when we could not hold Educators' Night at the museum,  we produced and delivered Educator Appreciation Bags to 40 local schools. Bags included treats and grab-and-go activities.  Support was provided in part from North Pole Coffee Roasting Company and Costco.


Museum Education & Public Programs staff invite teachers and administrators to an annual evening of discovery and networking.
