What is the Field Trip Program?
ScienceWorks' Field Trip Program is an interactive, hands-on field trip that incorporates science education with fun! The program includes four parts, plus an orientation:
1. Exploration: students and chaperons have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Museum and explore exhibits at their own pace. (10-25 minutes)
2. Team Investigation: small groups of students rotate through specific exhibits where they conduct investigations, make observations, formulate questions and collect data while having fun! (45 minutes)
3. Discovery Lab: students get the opportunity to develop their inquiry skills through laboratory investigations. Typically, half of the field trip investigates in the Discovery Lab, while the other half investigates the exhibits (Team Investigation) to ensure that no more than 35 students are in the laboratory at the same time. The Discovery Lab is not available for groups larger than 70 students. Groups of over 70 students will be watching a ScienceLive! show during this time. (45 minutes)
4. ScienceLive!: students participate in a highly educational and highly energized science theater show with numerous hands-on experiments and demonstrations. (25-35 minutes).
