Resources for educators and parents!
The Children’s Museum of Acadiana is dedicated to our mission “Learning By doing”. During this unpredictable time of dealing with COVID-19,it’s important we keep our minds engaged. Our goal is to provide resources that educators and parents can use at home. Check out these fun S.T.E.A.M experiments and activities to try with your students.
