The Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum (MMCM) has launched a new, exciting STEM-based program for second-graders! The 2nd Graders Are 1st Class initiative focuses on expanding the experiential learning of second-grade students in the Great Lakes Bay Region by teaching the properties of air and water using two of our Museum’s galleries. Research shows that firsthand experiences give students exceptional opportunities to build and apply knowledge, problem solve, and think critically.

The MMCM is uniquely positioned to use its A-Mazing Airways and Water, Water Everywhere galleries to teach the properties of air and water to second-grade students in a hands-on, interactive environment through this initiative. High-quality academic lessons taught by the MMCM Education Team are carefully crafted “learning expeditions,” which cannot be duplicated in any classroom and are tailored to the Michigan Common Core standards.  In addition to meeting the state standards, the lessons position second-graders at the very beginning of the pipeline of talent in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)!
