EDUCATION AT THE PAVEK MUSEUM
WHERE SCIENCE AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION COME ALIVE!

PROVIDING THE INSPIRATION AND MOMENTUM OF THOUGHT TO ENVISION AND INVENT
THE COMMUNICATIONS OF TOMORROW

Today's children live in a world filled with marvels
of electronic communication that their parents could not have imagined.
Where did they come from?   How did they evolve?   What will the future hold?




THE BROADCAST WORKSHOP

Live and On the Air

"Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. You are listening to the crystal clear sounds of KPAV!"
So begins another radio show for another excited group of elementary school children participating in a Broadcast Workshop. Designed for children grades four through six, the Broadcast Workshop program helps students learn the history of electronic communication while creating their own 1960s-style radio broadcasts and participating in a TV quiz show. The Pavek Museum's Broadcast Workshop is considered one of the Twin Cities' very best field trip opportunities by schools and scout groups.



THE ELECTROMAGNETISM WORKSHOP

The Wonderful World of Electromagnetism


The perfect compliment to our Broadcast Workshop, The Wonderful World of Electromagnetism introduces youngsters in grades four through six to the force that powers our modern world, from electronic communication to electric power generation. Students learn the basic concepts of the relationship between electricity and magnetism with a variety of hands-on activities that are both educational and entertaining.


The Museum offers a Workshop Combo combining the Broadcast Workshop with the Electromagnetism Workshop allowing students to participate in two unique field trip experiences in one day. Broadcast Workshops may also be conducted in conjunction with related workshops on electricity and magnetism at the nearby Bakken Museum.

For more information, or to schedule your Workshop or Workshop Combo, please write the Museum at contact@pavekmuseum.org or call 952/926-8198.
