All GCM exhibits are educator-designed to encourage thoughtful questioning and critical thinking. We take our role as a community resource that helps kids meet Florida State Standards very seriously. All of our SMALLab and Think Studio experiences directly address Florida State Standards and are a part of our unique DREAM curriculum, which focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math as well as these additional concepts critical to 21st century careers:
D Design Thinking to discover how our world works
R Reading skills to explore, grow, and learn
E Engineering to make us better builders of tomorrow
A A renaissance of all things Art & Architecture
M Mathematical concepts to bind us together, Musical knowledge to keep our toes tapping, and Making a world that we have yet to imagine
Approximately 3 hours.
The museum generally hosts between 50-350 students per day, Tuesday through Friday. Mondays are set aside for special needs groups and a limited engagement program where we provide scholarships for students at Renaissance Schools. School groups may enjoy lunch any time in Curtis Hixon Park excluding the pavement area around the Tampa Museum of Art. In case of inclement weather, an indoor space may be provided.
