Start here to create an editable and printable document that outlines your field trip itinerary, learning goals, student questions, etc.
a. Below, filter Museum offerings by grade level and learning goal.
b. Select up to 4 offerings to add to your field trip guide. Your selections will be shown on the right.
c. Click the "Get Your Guide" button.
The following activity sheets match one or more of your selections.
The evidence we collect from fossils tells part of an amazing tale of animal adaptation. Get an up-close look at Cliff, a real Triceratops skeleton, and examine the evidence that dinosaurs left behind more than 65 million years ago.
Conserving energy not only helps save our precious natural resources, it also saves money. Explore how your household spends its energy "budget" and discover the changes you can make that will deliver the greatest savings. Play around in this fun backyard setting, and learn how to make the most of your time and money!

In this exhibit, visitors explore the Milky Way Galaxy to discover how different wavelengths on the electromagnetic spectrum can offer a range of information about our universe. Gain a physical understanding of the other parts of our solar system, and how our infinitesimal planet compares to our stellar neighbors, nearby galaxies, and beyond.
Students learn about the engineering design cycle through hands-on activities that let them design, build, and test a prototype. Activities rotate throughout the week. (Also, be sure to explore the nearby Innovative Engineers and Current Science & Technology exhibits.)
Ever wonder what it would be like to fly to Mars? Explore human spaceflight by hearing how NASA and others are working on the technology that will get us there! Glide through the International Space Station, follow the rockets as we design bigger and faster ways of getting to orbit, and look ahead to future missions beyond the Moon and all the way to Mars!
A Triceratops skeleton, a full-size Tyrannosaurus rex model, fossils, a dinosaur track way, and interactives engage students and encourage them to think like scientists. Check out the nearby Colossal Fossil: Triceratops Cliff exhibit. What specific features do you notice about the Triceratops?
Participate in fun, hands-on activities that encourage discovery through play. Observe small animals up close, examine rocks, and use magnifying glasses and microscopes with the assistance of staff or volunteers. (Admission to the Discovery Center is now limited to groups with children ages 8 or younger. The Discovery Center will also limit the number of visitors at any one time. Depending on capacity, your group may be asked to wait until space is available.)
All around the world, engineers are pushing the limits of inguenity and innovation in unexpected, imaginative and amazing ways. Celebrate human ingenuity by taking a journey of discovery from the world's tallest building, to a bridge higher than the clouds, to a solar car race across Austrailla. Witness how today's Engineers are shaping the world of tomorrow.
Energized! focuses on sunlight, wind, moving water, and other self-replenishing sources that generate cleaner energy with fewer negative side effects. Hands-on interactives, models, videos, and other activities spark curiosity and understanding about renewable energy, innovative energy technologies, and today's complex energy choices.
