As always, these field trips are free!

During the 2019 season, the Bradbury Science Museum saw almost 5000 students. Over half of those students came with their school group for an educator-facilitated Museum Xplorations (MX) program. While the majority of students hail from Northern New Mexico, we also see students from Texas, Colorado, even from as far away as Germany. 

The 2020 season was, for obvious reasons, far quieter than the year preceding it. However, here at the Bradbury, we’re all about making lemonade when life hands you lemons (and 2020 has certainly been a bit of a lemon). As we look forward to the upcoming 2020-2021 field trip season, all efforts are geared towards offering students and educators the same exceptional quality of educational programming through a new, virtual format. Not only will this new, virtual format expand learning opportunities for our Northern New Mexico students, but it may also offer our unique STEM-focused, theme-based programming to students around the globe. 

The Bradbury’s new, virtual field trips will be STEM-based, hands-on, and offer several options to choose from, depending on the needs and capabilities of each group. Each of these options will include a combination of the following: custom videos, live-streamed events, pre-field trip materials delivery, post field trip follow ups. As always, these field trips are free, including the materials packages available for each participating student.
