Are there any special considerations that you would like us to be aware of, either to better serve your students or when scheduling your reservation?:



Upon submission of your field trip request, your class will automatically be scheduled for a Classroom Presentation ($25, 1 hour) and Educational Kit ($15 per week). The classroom presentation will be scheduled for one week before your field trip at 1 p.m. and you will receive your Educational Kit during the presentation, which will be due back at the time of your field trip. This is the recommended configuration to maximize the impact of the full program.

Please indicate below if you would like to decline the kit rental and/or classroom presentation. Otherwise we will assume that you accept the additional resource(s).
