Steamtown NHS Announces New Elementary Education Programs
SCRANTON, PA – Steamtown NHS is proud to announce new education programs for Grades K-6 students in the northeastern Pennsylvania educational community! The new programs, designed to meet or exceed Pennsylvania Department of Education Standards for curriculum-based programs, were developed by the Park's Education Team, with assistance from local area educators and guidance from the Regional Education Center in Lowell, MA. The development process, from conception to final product, included concepts, focus groups, educator input, and first-hand student and educator evaluations. These new programs were developed to meet the Park's 5-year Comprehensive Interpretive Plan (CIP) goals to strengthen the Park's educational programming, as well as to enhance relationships with educators and schools. The new programs are specifically targeted to work with educators in Pennsylvania's Luzerne Intermediate Unit #18 and Northeastern Educational Intermediate Unit #19.
