Working with students on project.

The Smithsonian offers many resources to support educators, caregivers, and students in the classroom, at home, and at our museums, research centers, and zoo.

Education is at the core of our mission—the increase and diffusion of knowledge—from informal education for students to lesson plans and professional development for teachers. A wealth of resources and digital tools support inquiry-based learning and active engagement to spark creativity and curiosity.
