“RACE: Are We So Different?” provides an ideal opportunity for students and teachers to look at race through the lens of science, history, and personal experiences to promote a better understanding of human variation and ultimately to enhance understanding between all people.
There are numerous opportunities to engage teachers, students and administrators in the experience:
- Can't wait? Take a virtual tour.
- Check out the exhibits floor plan (PDF of floor plan coming soon!)
- Schedule a school visit through the Capital Area Visitor’s Center (CAVS), 919.807.7950 or SCHEDULE YOUR SCHOOL VISIT ONLINE
- Reserve group tickets for “RACE” through our box office (919.707.9950) once you have received your conformation number from CAVS.
- Schedule a Cultural Conversation for your students or as a professional development opportunity for teachers. A Cultural Conversation is an enlightening exchange of thoughts, opinions and ideas about race in a safe space facilitated by local experts. This exercise allows people in small groups (up 25) to have a meaningful and transformative experience as they reflect on their everyday life experiences with race. Fees apply.
