The max number of students the Stowe Center can have on a single day is 56, with room for an additional 8 adults. The Stowe House Experience explores the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, her anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom"s Cabin, its impact and connection to contemporary social issues with 6th-8th grade students. Museum educators use inquiry, critical thinking skills and storytelling to engage students in discussions on tours. Visitor-led tour experiences create opportunities for students to demonstrate their knowledge base, and museum educators adjust content accordingly. Students will be guided through Stowe"s Hartford home, where each room acts as a spring board to explore and understand the motives that led Stowe to write Uncle Tom"s Cabin and the impact of her novel through today. As students are guided through the house, storytelling, multimedia, and a hands-on look at primary sources from the past will prompt questions, discussion, connections and ideas for shaping the future. Students are encouraged to consider ways they can take informed action toward social justice and have a positive impact on their communities.
Limited transportation reimbursement available for 2023-24 on a first-come basis.
The Stowe Center requires 1 chaperone for every 10 students.
