What does Explora offer for Field Trips and Group visits?

Exhibit Explorations

Bring your group to explore our hands-on exhibit activities. Investigate gravity, water, light, air, numbers, sound, electricity, and more during a one- or two-hour exhibit exploration facilitated by Explora educators. You can also book a Classroom Exploration as an add-on for your field trip.

Classroom Explorations

Classroom Explorations are one-hour, experiential programs facilitated by Explora educators. Using an inquiry approach to learning, Explora educators involve every student in active exploration of physical materials. Our Classroom Explorations are benchmarked to the New Mexico State Standards. A full list of Classroom Programs can be found in Explora’s Educational Programs Guide.
