What is the maximum number of students I can bring on a field trip to your Center? Field trips are generally booked in groups of 60 or less.

What is the structure of a field trip? Field trips are booked in two-hour slots and may or may not include a presentation. If a presentation is requested, an additional fee is applied. Large groups are typically split into two groups, and while one half receives the presentation, the other explores the exhibits. The groups then exchange places.
