Field Trips

There is no better method for introducing your students to real-world science and mathematics than a visit to the University of Arizona campus. Some of the most prominent scientific research programs in the world are here, such as the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab. Many programs invite students into the laboratory where actual research is underway. Our Marine Discovery program, for example, provides a hands-on marine biology lesson in a real UA teaching laboratory.

Field trips are an important tradition and experience in the education of a child. We offer a variety of diverse experiences and unique locations that will allow you to choose the perfect fit for maximizing both education and fun. Choose from a broad array of options ranging from science discovery programs, one-of-a-kind facility and lab tours, planetarium shows, observatory visits, exhibits, and more.

If you are a K-12 teacher and need financial support to take your students on a science field trip, we may be able to help. Check out our Field Trip Fund.
