Immerse brings classes to the GRPM for a full week so that students can use the Museum as their classroom and take their love of learning to a new level. The Museum’s Immerse Program provides a completely immersive, week-long learning experience for schools from the West Michigan region. The program is intended to help students jump start their development as problem solvers, communicators, collaborators and innovators.
“A week at the museum offered students an authentic and engaging learning experience. Students were eager, active participants and had so much fun they almost forgot they were at school” – Kelly Wegenka, CA Frost (GRPS) 5th grade parent.
Immerse is supported by Consumers Energy Foundation and the Sebastian Foundation.
