Field Trips

A trip to the museum is more than just a field trip! Learning outside of the classroom helps students relate in-school studies to practical applications in the world around them. Science Museum Oklahoma helps teachers statewide support classroom learning with engaging hands-on, inquiry-based exploration that speaks to the natural curiosity in young people.
