New England Heritage Education Summit
September 21, 2017
The Archaeological Institute of America and the Museum of Science are hosting a summit for heritage educators and those in affiliated fields at the Museum of Science in Boston.
If you are a heritage educator or in an affiliated field, we invite you to join us for a daylong summit where we will identify and highlight successful practices, provide participants with hands on experiences and practical advice, and encourage networking and collaboration among those of us who are engaged in similar efforts and share the same passion for reaching out to the public. We are looking for participants from a wide variety of backgrounds, including museums, historical societies, schools, historic parks, governmental agencies, non-profits, and living history groups to explore public outreach programs through shared and divergent lenses.
Join us for this unique professional development opportunity!
Date: October 13, 2017
Place: Museum of Science, 1 Science Park, Boston, MA 02114
