Can’t make it to the museum? With our offsite programs, we can come to you!
Allow our educators to come into your classroom and lead the group in a 45-60 minute series of activities on a specific topic. These activities can be repeated for as many classes as you have.
This program is a fun introduction to circuits. Children will gather understanding of how circuits work through a hands on demonstration, make their own circuit, and then test the conductivity of items brought from the museum.
Communication of the Past
How did people communicate before cell phones? That question will be answered through the sending and receiving of messages in Morse code. Depending on the age, and the time remaining, children will get the opportunity to make a bracelet of their initials in Binary (the language of early computers).
Engineers make the world go around. Try your hand at two different types of engineering (mechanical and electric) with our fun bridge building activity and our Little Bits Kits.
Learn more about the science of crime. Everyone has heard of DNA, but have you ever seen it? Our fun strawberry DNA activity allows kids to extract DNA out of a common fruit and see it with their own eyes! Another way of identification is through finger prints. Allow our educator to guide the children through identifying the parts of their own fingerprints.
Test out your knowledge of dinosaurs with our knowledge of fossils. Using our unique dinosaur footprints (also known as trace fossils), see if you can match the beast to the feet. Try your hand at making your own carbon film fossil with our unique fossil pages.
Dive right into the food web, with our owl pellet dissection. Every group of children will get to dissect an owl pellet to see if they can reassemble the animal that the owl last ate. There is also a fun game that shows kids how animals are different across different levels of the food web.
Pricing: $100 a class (30 students max) with a $20 upcharge for every additional ten miles traveled past the first ten.
