Field Trips are great

Field Trips

Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, Arizona Science Center is proud to offer a great educational opportunity for your students. Field trips provide a rich learning experience, support science standards and create excitement for learning science through our hands on exhibits and activities! Our field trips are also designed to help build science skills in your students.

We offer a free teacher orientation and materials that will prepare you, and your students and chaperones, for a science centered field trip. Below, you will find pre- and post-visit materials, standards-based teacher and student investigations and guides, and bilingual chaperone guides.
