Field trips are more than a “vacation” from school. Coupled with meaningful and relevant lesson objectives, a field trip experience can engage students in learning and leave a lasting impression for continued science curiosity. Discovery Cube field trip programs offer teachers and students a way to explore, discover, and practice scientific process skills through hands-on exhibits, investigations, and immersive experiences.
