“The exhibits related to core content very well. The field trip was very educational and engaging. We wouldn’t change a thing!”
Discovery Field Trips:
Join us at the Living Arts & Science Center for immersive experiences in the arts and sciences! Field trips to the LASC are designed for each group’s interests and are composed of one or more selected 45-minute components as listed below. Specially designed full-day options at the LASC are also available.
Component 1: The Science Discovery Exhibit (Suitable for all grades)
