School

Field trips engage students’ investigative skills as they explore concepts in animal science, weather, botany, STEM, puzzle solving, and more. During their visit, they might meet live animals, dissect flowers, examine soil, play with electricity or magnetism, or discover the designs in bridge building. "Choose Your Own Science Adventure" allows groups to pick up to 3 topics to learn about. They can bend laser beams, observe chemical reactions, see spectacular demonstrations of combustion and liquid nitrogen, and more. "Science Reads," an innovative format, combines experiments with storytelling to explore topics like insects, sound, plants, and bridges. Both of these programs can be scheduled as either an on-site or assembly program. Other programs offered offsite include live animal lessons and the travelling STARLAB Planetarium.
