BRAHM is proud to offer a Free Field Trip Program for public and home schools in Watauga, Ashe, Avery, and Caldwell counties. Other schools are welcome too ($5/student).
A limited number of reimbursements for school bus transportation are available for Watauga County schools that receive Title I funding, thanks to a grant from St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church.
Museum field trips can: enhance students' critical thinking, observational skills, and historical empathy; introduce students to a wide variety of art media and techniques; teach proper museum etiquette; and help teachers meet NC Essential and Common Core standards in visual arts, social studies and history.
Grades served and standards met vary by season.
