Living History Museum Project; This project is a unique partnership with the Rochester Museum and Science Center to develop a School-to-Work museum experience. Middle school students study ways in which social studies skills are practiced in the working world through participating in research, writing, and creating a museum in which they are the chief contractors, designers, and curators. The Strong Museum will be included as a connecting activity between the middle school and the Rochester community where the skills of design, research, drafting and public education are practiced. Students will interview museum staff to learn the skills necessary to creating their own museum.
