Outreach Program

If you want to offer your students an exciting, unique science program, but don’t have the time or resources for a field trip, call our Education Outreach services. We roll up and roll in to your classroom or after-school program to provide exceptional programs designed to ignite your students’ curiosity and inspire a lifelong discovery of science.

You can choose from high-interest, curriculum-linked science topics, such as space and renewable energy. Programs are specific to grade level ranges.

Maximum student attendance is 32 for workshops and 50 for demonstrations. Please note minimum fee is for 20 students per program, even if your class is smaller. Minimum of two programs per day must be booked.

Outreach programs are offered as classroom experiences or after-school activities outside the Nashville Metropolitan Area.

Program dates are subject to availability.

Program fees are $4 or $5 per student, depending on which program is requested. Schools also pay the federal standard mileage rate in place on the date of the program (currently $0.55 per mile). Minimum fee is for 20 students per program.

Choose one topic per date and then call 615-862-5177 for additional program details and reservation information.
