DMNSThe Denver Museum of Nature & Science has been awarded two honors from the Colorado Distance Learning Association. Mark Widdifield, the Museum’s Assistant Coordinator for Distance Learning, was named Teacher of the Year and the Virtual Heart program received the Program of the Year Award.

The Museum’s Distance Learning Program reaches thousands of students in schools all over the country, not just in Colorado. Its outreach provides students an engaging and interactive video experience of science that they are unlikely to get any other way, particularly for those in rural schools. The Colorado Distance Learning Project is working with DMNS to increase access to its programs.
