For Teachers 

We Visit You

Science on Wheels: We drive our van to your school.

During the school year, the Bradbury Science Museum Educators drive our van to schools within 90 miles of Los Alamos on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We visit with a minimum of four classes in one location at the school for 1-hour sessions. Our programs are participatory and highly engaging. We schedule trips as we receive requests, on a first-come first-served basis.

Winter weather

The Science on Wheels van does not travel during weather events when there is a delay or cancellation either at your school or involving Los Alamos National Laboratory. We often can’t contact a school in these events. We will make every effort to reschedule, if possible, close to the cancellation date. The Lab’s closure information number is (505) 667-6622.
