MoPOP’s education programs use the universe of pop culture to inspire curiosity, invite open dialogue, foster collaboration and creative thinking, and provide equitable access to all.

Our innovative exhibitions, hands-on activities, and interactive workshops help your students make connections between popular music, storytelling, writing, movies, comics, and your classroom curriculum.

  • Join us virtually or bring our outreach kit to you! We will not offer in-person programs for the remainder of 2021, but we encourage interested groups to explore our extensive Livestream Workshop options or inquire about bringing our Outreach Kit into your classroom, after school program, or other student space!
