Field Trips

We are now accepting field trips for the 20-21 school year. Field Trips can either be at the museum, virtual, or we can come to your classroom to lead a lesson!

To support with KnowAtom, EUREKA! staff can come to your classroom and run KnowAtom labs and investigations. Please select this option in the request form and provide which unit and lesson you would like taught.

What you need to know

Visit the museum:

Field trips are generally booked in two-hour slots.
The visit may include an interactive 1 hour classroom lab activity and 1 hour of exploration in our hands-on exhibit hall.
Large groups (above 30) are typically split into two groups, and while one half receives the presentation, the other explores the exhibits. We are able to accommodate groups of up to 120 students. We look forward to seeing you!

Mesa County schools can also request a school visit where Eureka! staff comes to your classroom to conduct a field trip lesson. Please communicate this in the special requests box at the end of the request form.
