The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History has created daily on-demand community-based content free of charge. Knowledgeable and friendly scientists, historians, and educators will answer questions and lead families through interactive experiences.

The museum video series uses live animals, historical artifacts, and science demonstrations to engage the public. This program empowers children to ask questions and provides a place in the community where they are answered personally. Many educational videos include:
-Why is the Ford Model T So Important? (for second-fifth graders)
-Learn about Bees (preK-second grade). Bees are some of the coolest insects out there! Join Museum School to learn about these important and fascinating little creatures.
-How Ida Loving Turner Shaped Fort Worth: Around the turn of the 20th century, Fort Worth's Ida Loving Turner was everywhere! Discover how she shaped the city we live in today.

IF/THEN: Women in STEM series
