The Imperial Valley Desert Museum's education program is the embodiment of the Museum's mission statement and goal, "to be the foremost research and educational institution devoted to preservation, interpretation, and celebration" of the deserts of Southern California.
Since the Museum's doors have been opened, the education program was implemented and has now expanded to in-house field trips, History on the Go!, partnering with Imperial County Probation & Juvenile Hall, Betty Jo McNeece Receiving Home, and two after school programs.
IVDM offers a variety of field trip programming throughout the year. Field trips are designed to meet grade level specific curriculum standards through engaging, hands-on experiences in history,-social science, next generation science standards, and visual arts.
