Elementary Science Field Trips To The Works Museum

Introduce your students to engineering with field trips to The Works Museum!

Experience exciting hands-on engineering activities and science fun with your elementary aged students. Explore interactive exhibits in the Museum featuring building, simple machines, optics, sensors, and more! Our Museum experiences are located on one easy-to-supervise level. Add a workshop to your field trip for more science education and engineering fun. Workshop topics include Light and Kaleidoscopes, Chemical Changes, Pasta Bridges, Super Circuits, and more! Engage your students in grades K – 6 with hands-on science and engineering activities.

We offer elementary engineering activities and science education workshops in 30, 60, 90 minute, or 2-hour long blocks. Cost varies by length (price does not include a Museum visit).

Workshops support the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in science.

Workshops can be added to a field trip at the Museum or our educators can come to your location. Read about workshops at your school. All workshops feature hands-on engineering activities and support Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in science.

It was amazing! The students said it was the best field trip they have ever been on. It fits so well into what we are learning in sixth grade, and other grades could get so much out of it!
