Educating Through the 21st Century
Science, history and the arts are all combined in the education programs of the Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Following the legacy of the two famous entrepreneurs, there are unlimited opportunities for discovery, invention and innovation. All education programming follows the Sunshine State Standard curriculum.
Classes, summer camps and demonstration programs are offered throughout the site including the newly restored historic Edison Caretaker's House, the outdoor garage at the Edison Caretaker's House, inside the Museum galleries and throughout the historic gardens.
The Edison Ford Wild Wizard is available to students and teachers through the monthly online video lesson, outreach programs into the schools for assemblies or classroom instruction, and conference opportunities just for teachers to learn how to find the fun while teaching science. Home School students are offered monthly classes taught by the Wild Wizard on a variety of subjects using Sunshine State Standard curriculum.

Join southwest Florida artist, Marie Dyer, and create your own hand painted silk scarf (either six feet long or 35 inch square). Marie will teach a variety of techniques to inspire painters of all levels to create their own "one of a kind" scarf. The scarves can be worn as part pieces or used as art for the home. All materials will be provided to produce a finished piece just in time for the perfect Mother's Day present. Marie's scarves will be on display in the Edison Ford Museum store and are available for purchase. "Scarf Art" will be held in the historic Edison Caretaker's House at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.
Known for her vivid floral and landscape paintings, Marie has been a featured artist at Edison Ford. Marie has taught "Scarf Art" workshops at locations throughout the New England area. Her vibrant colors and love of nature are reflected in her distinctive work.
