Field Trips

Are you looking to engage your students in a deeper understanding of science concepts aligned with Next Generation Science Standards? Field trips are more than a “vacation” from school. Coupled with meaningful and relevant lesson objectives, a field 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. Whether you visit our Orange County or Los Angeles science center or join us at Discovery Cube’s Ocean Quest in Newport Beach, we have a highly engaging, grade specific program to excite the curiosity of all students.

Grade-Specific Science Demonstrations

As part of your field trip experience to Discovery Cube Orange County or Discovery Cube Los Angeles, your class will participate in a 15-minute, California Science Content Standards-aligned demonstration.
