Field Trips

Museum Field Trip Programs

Museum Field Trip ProgramsOur Education Department understands the needs of teachers in our area. Whether for public, private or homeschool educators, programs are designed to provide a high quality learning experience for students while maintaining the fun, hands-on atmosphere that makes the field trip experience so rewarding. All programs are aligned to Academic Content Standards and most include preliminary and post visit activities. 


Preschool (3–5 years)

Preschool (3–5 years)Children’s brains are like sponges—what they learn in their early years carries a lifetime impact. That’s why we offer high quality, engaging early childhood education designed to meet state standards and help your students grow.





KindergartenKindergarten is a special time of transition—academically, socially, and emotionally. Each program is designed to meet Ohio’s Academic Content Standards and recognize the special developmental needs of Kindergarten children.


Grades 1–3

Grades 1–3Early experiences last a lifetime!  All early elementary programs are designed to be engaging and build confidence in “doing” science, while meeting Ohio’s Academic Content Standards.


Grades 4–6

Grades 4–8Programs for middle school grades encourage students to make connections between academic learning, personal experiences and society. In addition to meeting Ohio Academic Content Standards, these programs encourage problem-solving, critical thinking, and taking action beyond the initial learning experience.


Grades 7-12

Grades 9–12High school programs are designed to build knowledge, encourage critical thinking and problem solving, and to prepare students for their roles as decision makers in society. And of course, all programs are aligned to Ohio’s Academic Content Standards.
