Virtual Education Program
With Maui’s schools being challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic, and field trips unlikely, the Sugar Museum has developed portable lending kits for teachers to use in the classroom. These kits are filled with learning materials, crafts and games that teach children about our sugar plantation heritage.
The Sugar Museum’s education program, which was developed in 1988 and rolled out in 1990, is a standards-based program where students learn about the history of the sugar industry and plantation life on Maui, and how it has shaped its people and landscape. In 2020 we reached the milestone of 30 years of serving Maui’s students!
Portions of the Education Program are funded by a generous grant from Alexander & Baldwin.
