Roberson provides programs designed to enhance school curricula with in-person and virtual activities.

Most programs include a component of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math to engage students in developing STEAM skills. Our education staff has programs aligned to New York State School Standards.

We have modified our programs for in-person and online formats. 


Can’t come to see us? We’ll bring Roberson to you! Join us for one, two, or three of our special virtual programs below where your students will interact in real-time with a Museum educator as you are guided through an activity and video tour of our exhibits. Bonus: Pre and post activities for your students are included so the learning continues even when we log off.

Reviews From Past School Groups

The kids really liked it. Most of the children have never been here or any where like this. Thank you! Great job!! We’ll be back next year, I even learned a few things.”

We had a great visit. I love how each center tied to our curriculum. Very interactive and fun.”

just wanted to say thank you to you and the staff at Roberson for an excellent program. Our students really enjoyed their visit and learned quite a bit.

Learning about Edwin Link and his inventions integrated so well with what we have been studying in the ELA module. Common ideas and vocabulary really help our children internalize their learning. Needless to say, they absolutely loved building sails and the Planetarium show.

Thank you again for all your help in arranging this field trip. Fifth grade teachers at Perry Browne are looking forward to planning more trips to Roberson in the future.”

On behalf of the staff and students from Otselic Valley I would like to say thank you for a wonderful visit and lessons. The students could not stop talking about all the different activities. As teachers we were impressed by all the staff we worked with. The lessons and activities were engaging and on point with the curriculum and grade level. Our educators did more than present, they made sure the students were all engaged and having a good time. I look forward to bringing more classes and students to experience all the Museum has to offer.”
