|Here's what others are saying about our programs||
The programs at FWMSH have consistently been instructionally focused, engaging, fun for the students and teachers, and well coordinated. ..
I know that if the museum offers a program, it will be a quality session that the teachers will feel worthwhile taking their students to, even though it will take time out of their coveted instructional time. So kudos to you and your staff.

About Geometric Transformations:
The video conference last Thursday was outstanding! It was gratifying to see the students get involved, question, try different solutions, etc. They were still talking about the activities on Friday.
Kay Clark, Brock ISD, Brock Texas
This program (All About Matter) was wonderful. The materials sent were great for the students to use fro the lesson and the information taught in the program was perfect for my science unit.
