We like to support education and lifelong learning!

Whether you are near or far, we have lots available.

At the Museum, we love science, and we’d like to share the excitement of learning with you and your students!

Come Visit Us!

Whether you are coming here from Spain or Santa Fe, we love to have groups stop by. Our only caveat is that you let us know ahead of time so we can be adequately prepared to greet you. The details we’d like to have are given here. We ask that you send that information to bsm-reservations@lanl.gov. Thanks!

Science on Wheels

If you’re from a local school and can’t get to us, contact us anyway. Maybe we can come to you. Some traveling demonstrations are “Let’s Rock" about geology and “Starlab” which helps students learn about astronomy. (“Starlab” requires at least a 12-foot ceiling.) Again, send us the pertinent information (listed on our website). We’ll work to accommodate you. The earlier you book, the better your chances of having us visit you. Worried about the cost? Don’t. It’s free!

Scientist Ambassadors

The Museum has a host of trained science communicators who can visit your classroom to cover a range of topics from mechanical engineering to biology. Let us know what you need, and we’ll try to schedule one of them for you. You can get a better feel for what we offer here

Teacher Resources

We are currently updating and improving our Discover pages. Some pages will have launched by the time you read this, and further improvements are on the horizon.

Science Education Community Service Time

Lab employees are allowed to take some paid time off each year to support regional science education activities. If you would like one of our Laboratory educators (a scientist or engineer) to come to your classroom, contact the Community Partnerships Office at (505) 554-4400, or email Janelle Vigil-Maestas at vigil-m@lanl.gov.

Our Best Wishes

Both of our current Laboratory educators (Liz and Gordon) will have retired from the Lab by the end of this month. We wish them well as they begin their retirement activities. We appreciate the contributions they’ve made to regional students and teachers.

Liz and Gordon

Liz Martineau and Gordon McDonough made a real, positive difference during their years at the Museum. Thank you.
