A field trip to the Powerhouse Science Center is a fun, memorable, hands-on science adventure that we’re sure your students will never forget. We offer two field trip packages.
Our two hour, Level One field trip option, at $8 per student, consists of a historic coal tour led by one of our Mad Scientists, and free exploration of our gallery.
Our two hour, Level Two field trip option, at $15 per student, consists of a historic coal tour led by one of our Mad Scientists, free exploration of our gallery, and an instructor-led interactive, hands-on science lesson sure to WOW your students. With adequate advance notice you can choose between a conventional STEM based lesson or an activity in our new MakerLab.
We want to promote a positive experience for all visitors at the science center. Due to our small facility, we need to limit the number of students visiting to no more than 60 per field trip. We can make special arrangements for a visit with more than 60 students at an additional cost.
We ask that you please bring at least one chaperone for every 15 students. All chaperones and teachers are welcome free of charge.
Please see the Field Trip Request form below for available field trip options.
Remember, the science center is an informal learning environment where visitors learn by doing, by wondering, and by experimenting. We strive to move the student beyond simple acquisition of information to application, synthesis, and evaluation. The information on this page will help ensure that your time is productive, enjoyable, and in line with your curriculum goals and objectives.
