Discover creative ways to enhance learning

Take advantage of opportunities to bring Lowcountry topics to life

A trip outside the classroom is often a highlight in a student’s year. They remember the experience and, more importantly, what they learned. The Morris Center offers a variety of lesson plans and programs for schools and other educational organizations. Tailored to South Carolina’s Curriculum Standards, these lessons and programs engage and inspire students with hands-on learning activities.
