With generous support from Flint Hills Resources, the Science Matters Overnight Camp-In and Outreach program provides access to a range of science enrichment experiences for students at their schools and at the Science Museum.
Science Matters Outreach Tour
Get your students revved up on science! Our Science Museum outreach instructor will inspire and engage your students with bigger–than–life props and memorable science demonstrations—all in an interactive, large group format.
Dinosaurs (Grades K–2)
Discover how paleontologists interpret fossils and reconstruct a life-size dinosaur skeleton puzzle!
Engineering (Grades 3–6)
From high speed trains to gloves that insulate from heat and cold, engineered solutions can be seen everywhere.
