LIVE from inside the museum, it’s MoPOP! We are excited to announce new livestream workshops for the 2020–21 school year. Through discussions and lessons led by our museum educators, students will explore museum content and collaborate on curriculum-linked activities, all in real time.
Learn about The Hero’s Journey and write your own story, investigate science fiction in Building New Worlds, and explore the art of architecture (and MoPOP). Review our current workshops below, and look for new opportunities throughout the year.

The Hero's Journey
Embark on a hero’s journey! Using media like Star Wars, Wonder Woman, and beyond, we’ll examine common characters and story elements in heroic stories. Using Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey as our guide, we’ll venture into MoPOP’s Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic exhibition to explore characters, discuss the stages of the hero’s journey, and work together to create our own heroic stories.
