Visit to Your Classroom

Is a fieldtrip not in your budget or time-frame? We’re happy to come to you! The one-hour timeslot includes travel time in the Pocatello area, but we are happy to travel elsewhere in the state or stay longer at a school to serve multiple classes. We can arrange those details, as well as what content you would like us to cover, after you make your initial booking.

Duration: 1 hour

Custom, standards-based activity

If more than just a tour is what you are looking for, we have (or can work with you to develop) Idaho standards-based, hands-on activities and lessons revolving around our exhibits and collections. From lessons in the exhibit hall, to personalized on-campus hands-on experiences, to outdoor learning, we can meet the needs of your class! Note: 14 day advance notice is required for custom lessons.
