Programs & Education

Inspire a Passion for Science and Nature

Learning and discovery are around every corner of the EcoTarium’s 45-acre grounds and three-floor museum.

Whether you are a teacher, scout leader, or other youth group field trip coordinator, we look forward to helping you select the right program for your group’s next visit.

Groups that visit the EcoTarium enjoy our indoor exhibits, outdoor exhibits, wildlife, and grounds, and have the option to book our Education Programs. From animals and astronomy to electricity, rockets, and beyond, our Education Programs are designed to combine fun and learning for your group.

If you are unable to bring your group to the EcoTarium, let the EcoTarium come to you! Our Traveling Education Programs offer convenient, affordable, and unique science and nature learning experiences at your location. You provide the space and the EcoTarium provides a Museum Educator and all materials needed for hands-on exploration. Our Traveling Education Programs are available September 4, 2018 - June 21, 2019.

Unique and fun-filled educational experiences

Your group may be interested in our Night Journeys: Overnight Adventures program, where youth groups spend a night in our museum. Night Journey programs are packed with hands-on activities based on one of our exciting science themes and include a digital planetarium program. Overnight groups can even work towards scout badges and school curriculum standards based on their theme selection.  Another special add-on experience, Wild Toys Animal Adventure, offers smaller groups a more personalized program to learn about the natural behaviors of wildlife.
