Exhibit Explorations

Virtual field trip experiences for grades 3–12

Take a deep dive into your favorite Science Center exhibits with four themed experiences tailored to your students’ grade level. With engaging demonstrations, exhibit tours, and live instruction from our team of science educators, each virtual field trip experience is packed with the exciting and educational STEM lessons found in every Science Center program — all streamed directly to your classroom!

Each theme is available with grade-appropriate content for Elementary School (grades 3–5), Middle School (grades 6–8), and High School (grades 9–12). Each Exhibit Explorations program meets Next Generation Science Standards and Pennsylvania State Science Standards.

Themes include:

  • Engineering and Robotics: Learn about the engineering design process by exploring the robots in roboworld® and investigating how they accomplish tasks. Then, visit educators in BNY Mellon Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center as they use a 3D printer and laser cutter to prototype a flying machine.
  • Animals and Aquaria: Understand how organisms interact with other living components of an ecosystem and how water quality affects populations. Featuring video interactions with the swimming, hopping, and slithering animals in the H2Oh! Field Station.
  • Space and Astronomy: Explore the relationship between the Earth, Sun, and other celestial bodies with out-of-this-world interactions in Buhl Planetarium and SpacePlace. End with a bang as the Theaters team demonstrates rocket propulsion using an alcohol-powered rocket.
  • Health and The Human Body: Observe how systems of the body behave and how external factors affect our overall health with a tour of BodyWorks. Then, visit the Works Theater for a demonstration of how the human body turns food into energy.
