Bring Your Students to the Hall

Field Trips

Field Trips

On a visit to the Hall, students collaborate to investigate new ideas as they become scientists and engineers for a day—exploring Earth and space, the nanoscale, and force and motion. Our featured exhibits, 3D films, and workshops, tailored for your class level, enhance your students' experience.

Individual Experiences for Youth

Camps and Classes

Youth get inspired as they explore, build, and create with new friends and cool tools! Our Camps and Classes are a great place to spend winter breaks, summer breaks, or anytime in between.

Parties and Rentals
