Career-Focused Field Trips

Our career-focused field trips allow your students to focus in on important STEM topics while interacting with tons of engaging exhibits and meeting some of the best and brightest professionals in the field!


Celebrate National Chemistry Week with us at ChemFest! Chemistry is not limited to beakers and laboratories; it is all around us! See how chemistry is used in the workplace and in everyday life with engaging activities supervised by chemists from local businesses and universities.

With this year’s “Marvelous Metals” theme, learn why chemistry “rocks” with specialized activities focused around geochemistry — the chemistry of rocks.
