On Monday, May 6, the Oklahoma History Center Museum’s Learning and Engagement department will host a virtual field trip in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution. The session for elementary students is from 10 to 11 a.m., and the high school session is from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Dr. Theodore Gonzalves, curator of Asian Pacific American History at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, will discuss artifacts and objects featured in his book Smithsonian Asian Pacific American History, Art, and Culture in 101 Objects (2023).

Additional material shared during the virtual field trip will include an overview of the Oklahoma History Center Museum’s Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) educational trunk, a brief lesson on AAPI history, a discussion with students about being a museum curator, and other educational resources.

The virtual field trip will take place on Microsoft Teams. Educators should register their class(es) online in advance. The sessions will not be recorded to protect the students’ identities. Discussion is encouraged, and questions will be allowed. During the virtual field trip, teachers will be instructed to keep their cameras off and mute their microphones.
