Mission to Mars, Grade 3–6
Blast off on a journey of discovery and make room for a space station orbiting Mars, transporting your classroom of young astronauts. This transformation will challenge your group to use their team work, critical thinking, and artistic skills to solve problems, perform an extra-vehicular activity, and design the future of space travel. Your Mars mission takes science, arts, and math to a new stratosphere! Junior astronauts will be left feeling inspired by human ingenuity and the universe around them.
Wild Senses, Pre-k–Grade 2
We’ll transform your room into a natural wonderland begging to be explored. Your little learners take on animal behaviors to experience the natural world around them, as animals would. Kids smell out their food like a squirrel, hunt in the dark like a raccoon, and use infrared detection to see prey like a snake. An adventurous Denver Museum of Nature & Science educator will guide these explorers as they experience adaptation and senses first hand through animals’ wild senses. This program will amaze and delight your animals—er, kids—with pretend play and fun, educational activities.
Invisible Forces, Grade 4–8 grade
Invisible Forces brings to you a zany laboratory where students race to reveal the mysteries of unseen forces! A skilled Denver Museum of Nature & Science educator will challenge your problem solvers to use their critical thinking, team work, and building skills to decipher clues and experiment with physical forces like magnetism, sound waves, and electricity. This program uses physics, science, and mathematics to reveal codes to unravel the mysterious secret.
