Class Visits and Field Trips…….

We Love S.T.E.M. disciplines!!!

The Discovery Center has been serving up fun, hands-on Science classes for over 50 years.  No one does it the way we do!  All our classes are aligned to CA Science Standards/EEI by grade level.  Our classes are student interactive and involve hands on activities, as well as a question and answer period.  No boring lectures here!  Our motto is Touch, Touch, Touch!

We offer Field Trip programs at the center, as well as classroom visits to your school.  Our curriculum explores Earth Science, Physical Science, and Life Science.

Reservations are quickly filled and often booked 6 months or more in advance. We also require that all bookings must be booked 14 or more days prior to the actual class date. The sooner you can book with us the better. So call and reserve your choice of date, time & program today!

Pricing:

A one-hour Classroom Visit at your school is $150.00. (35 children maximum)

A one-hour Field Trip class at our Center is $7.00 per student, per class, (no limit on the number of students)

 

Classroom Visits at your school – we will provide a science presentation and lesson with a matching hands-on activity for your chosen topic.  We will bring all equipment and provide all supplies.

Field Trips to the Center – we provide the presentation (including multi-media), the equipment, and the supplies.  After your class is done, your students are free to explore the park and its many natural play areas. Stay for as long as you’d like in our 6 acre park!  Bring a bag lunch and sit under our shade trees at our picnic table area.  Enjoy a self-guided tour or visit our gift shop!
