But we have fallen short in disseminating knowledge to a wider and younger audience. Therefore, the Education Program has created a classroom resource, I See Wonder, to uncover our collections and frame them with context and questions that promote discovery and the desire to learn. In addition, we offer outreach programs and events for teens and millennials. Our goal is share our collections with a new audience and foster meaning making in all ages.
