Each school year, Jefferson National Expansion Memorial offers a limited number of Outreach Programs to St. Louis Public Schools and East St. Louis Public Schools. The programs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Outreach Programs are free, 60-minute classroom visits by a park staff for grades three through six. Park staff will introduce courtroom roles and procedures and facilitate a mock trial by students. Teachers may download mock trial scripts from the Outreach Program Activity Guide.
For more information, please contact Peter Hovey by email or by phone at 314.655.1637.
