Putnam Museum

Log Number: ARPML-251043-OMLS-22

The Putnam Museum in Davenport, Iowa, will provide in-person and virtual versions of its week-long STEM residency program for K–6 students, which is free for Title I students and their teachers. The center also will provide a program for English language learner students’ household members, who will take part in family workshops, free passes and memberships, and an afterschool/weekend year-round academy for students in grades 4–6 focused on helping them gain new knowledge, make up for learning time and vocabulary development lost to the COVID-19 pandemic, discover their passions, and prep for high school career academies. Tools such as Likert scales and pre-/post-tests will help assess the museum’s ability to help at-risk and struggling students gain knowledge and improve parents’ opportunities to take part in their children’s learning.
