If you can’t visit the Everhart with your class, the Museum can come to you!

Everhart Museum on the Road! Offers a series of outreach programs inspired by our temporary and permanent exhibits lead by professional museum staff and guest educators.

The Museum on the Road program reflects the Museum’s growing interest in STEM to STEAM (http://stemtosteam.org/)

the RISD-led initiative to add Art and Design to the national agenda of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and research in America. STEM + Art = STEAM. The goal is to foster the true innovation that comes with combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer.
