Mission

The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon implements a real and relevant education enrichment program that touches several disciplines with a specific focus on math and science. Using on-site modules and education programs tailored for grade-specific levels, The Hall augments classroom instruction in an entertaining environment that promotes teamwork and learning.

 

About our Education Program

The Hall is committed to its education mission and to working with teachers, administrators, business professionals and consultants to maintain, grow and improve educational offerings in all disciplines that complement a student’s classroom work with real curriculum-based learning in a fun setting.

When The Hall was under construction in 2007, it teamed with several local teachers that volunteered their time to consult about an education program. The teachers created lesson plans, which were sent to schools planning a visit. When The Hall opened in 2008, it worked with schools, but while teachers had pre-trip lessons on which to work with students, the field trip lacked the needed on-site programming to make for a rewarding, educational experience that would benefit students and satisfy teachers. That’s when The Hall re-focused its educational efforts and not only developed relevant on-site modules but worked closely with its amazing partner, Raytheon, to implement STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programming.

The result was a popular education program involving hands-on STEM modules that draws praise from educators and touches students on almost all grade levels. More than 20,000 field trip guests now visit The Hall annually and field trip availability fills up very quickly.
