To advance the knowledge of natural sciences for the people of Alabama through exhibitions, collections and quality programs of teaching, research, and service. That is the Alabama Museum of Natural History’s mission and as such we are dedicated to make sure that all school children have the joys and privilege of experiencing our state’s natural wonder, even if it is not feasible for them to partake in a tour of the museum.
Teachers and administrators, we will come to your classroom and/or school and bring the museum to you. We offer in-class presentations on a number of natural history topics with our most popular being Alabama’s Fossil History. Our presentations are a PowerPoint presentation for visual aid with a hands-on demonstration for the students. Presentations typically last for an entire class period but we can accommodate for shorter or longer times if needed. We can also do a presentation to an assembly of multiple classes in a media room or an auditorium when the entire grade or school is to be involved.
