Field Trips

We have many exciting field trip options with interactive content for every grade level!

As part of each field trip, your students will explore our self-guided exhibits, historic telescopes, live science demos, interactive floor activities, watch a planetarium show and spend time in our Project Create maker space.

Field trips take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

A typical day lasts from 9:30 AM – 1:45 PM.

Our packages include inquiry-based, NGSS-aligned workshops, live science shows, and simulated space missions in our Challenger Learning Center.
