In 2015, the Woodman Museum launched a new initiative with the assistance of 105 lively and curious 6th-grade students from Dover Middle School. Under the supervision of their teachers and chaperones, the students completed a three-part interactive and interdisciplinary learning project that covered social studies, English language arts, and arts and humanities. The students were introduced to specific objects from the collection and encouraged to explore and interpret their historic, social, economic, and artistic importance.
The funding for the learning project was made possible by a donation from Measured Progress, a non-profit educational assessment company located in Dover dedicated to improving teaching and learning.
