As part of our partnership with the New York State Museum, TOAST maintains a Museum Room at TOAST. The room is the site for object-based learning and hands-on activities that compliment and extend the Magnet School Theme Curriculum.
The Museum Education Program provides students with a sensory rich environment to promote keen observation and independent thinking. The Museum Room is a center-based room that allows children to move around the room; they can touch artifacts as well as investigate technology and its history.
Field trips to the New York State Museum are offered to classes on an on-going basis, allowing students access to the many fine exhibits at the school.
Partnerships that use the museum curriculum and compliment our science themes include:
* The New York State Museum
* Albany Visitor's Center and Planetarium
* Pine Bush Discovery Center
* Emma Treadwell Thatcher Nature Center
* Albany Institute of History and Art
