We loved the integrated art and science of the program and how it tied to content standards we are responsible to teach. It was a great way to extend learning for our students! – Fayette County teacher

Discovery Field Trips

Give your class an immersive experience in the arts and sciences!  Field trips to the Living Arts & Science Center are designed to meet your educational goals 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.

Build your day from the following components:

Component 1: The Science Discovery Exhibit
(Suitable for all grades)
Catching the Wind: The Nature and Science of Flight
Full description of the Discovery Exhibit

 

 

NGSS Alignment
Disciplines: Life Science & Physical Science
Cross Cutting Concepts: Pattern / Cause & Effect / Structure & Function / Influence of Engineering, Technology & Science on the Natural World
Disciplinary Core Ideas: Structure & Function / Properties of Matter / Transfer of Energy / Engineering Designs & Solutions / Force & Motion / Ecosystems / Biodiversity / Adaptation / Natural Selection / Inheritance & Variation of Traits

Component 2: The Explorer’s Classroom
A companion program for the Catching the Wind Discovery exhibit.
From flying squirrels and bats, to butterflies and bees, learn about different animal wings and how they fly. We will investigate and classify insect facts and make our own dragonflies to take home.
