Teaching the Next Generation

At MODA, we love teachers! We know you work hard to inspire students to learn each and every day. We also know that you need help and support and we're committed to being great partners in educating the next generation.

With exhibitions and hands-on programs, MODA provides school groups, after-school groups, and community groups a chance to dive headlong into design. We teach students how design can be used to address real world challenges and give them empowering hands-on experiences.

Our commitment to student learning takes a variety of forms, so let us know what works best for you and your students. We can help you with:

  • Field trips for grades 3 - 12 include in-gallery learning related to our exhibitions and hands-on design experiences. Click here for more field trip information.
  • In-museum, hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art/design, and math) experiences that spark student interest and encourage them to use these skills to address real-world challenges
  • Design Thinking sessions that give students a new and innovative way to solve problems while developing empathy, critical thinking, and collaboration skills
  • In-school presentations and hands-on experiences
  • Participation in STEM and STEAM Fairs 

Becoming a MODA Education Partners

MODA's Education Partners are schools, community centers, and educational organizations that share our belief that design is a tool for addressing important 21st century challenges.

MODA reinforces the educational efforts of our partners in innovative and out-of-the-box ways, helping to shape STEAM and Design Thinking problems and to empower students to use design to address real-world problems. In turn, our partners challenge us to think differently about what a museum is and how it interacts with visitors of all ages. As a result, our galleries are becoming classrooms, design labs, and sites of interaction and innovation.

For information about becoming an Education Partner at MODA, please contact Laura Flusche, lflusche@museumofdesign.org or 404.979.6457.
