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.
Will be announced in July, 2013. Registration will start in August.
September, October, & November
Our "Rock Museum" provides a springboard for discussions about the Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, the periodic table of elements, and the nature of matter.
Power of Observation
December & January
Observation is a key skill in scientific research. Explore the science of sight, use scientific observation tools, and investigate interpretation and illusion in this interactive program about visual perception.
Students will use their understanding of electricity to assemble fascinating circuits. They will examine the behaviors of several different kinds of conductors and insulators, construct fuses, and possibly even make a squishy circuit.
Discover the advantages and consequences of living with a star. Students create plasmas of charged particles, and learn about current Lab experiments examining the relationships between Earth's magnetic field and solar radiation.

This is an application for programs. You do not have a reservation until we have communicated back with you and confirmed the appointment!
Please list several dates to make it more likely that we can accommodate you.
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.
