Pricing:

  • $100 for first presentation. Successive presentations will be $25 for each additional repetition of a presentation on a single day.
  • One week notice is required for both reschedule and cancellation requests. If you fail to provide us with two weeks notice, you will be billed the full amount.
  • In the case of inclement weather we will reschedule your program at a mutually agreed upon date.

Please note:  Scheduling more than one presentation of a program per day increases cost effectiveness. Successive presentations of the same program should stay in the same room, and allow 15 minutes between each program for museum teacher preparation and setup.

Group Size: In-School programs accommodate up to 25 participants. To maintain our current program fees and ensure that all students receive a quality experience, the museum must limit group size to 25 students. Exceptions will not be permitted.

The Stuff of Earth

Students use their 5 senses and tools to investigate the properties and uses of soil, rocks and sand. They will discuss which materials are best used for building materials and for plant growth.

Sink or Float?

Grades Pre-K-3
Given a set of materials, students investigate which materials sink or float in water. They collaborate in groups and identify characteristics of objects that allow them to float.

Wouldn’t everyone like to find a dinosaur bone? Students participate in an archaeological style dig and identify the types of objects they find.

SubstandardFullSizeRenderBody System Explorations*
