Our youth field trips are perfect for schools, scout groups, after-school programs, home school programs, child-care centers, nonprofits, and any group that serves youth and adolescents. The field trips are available in-person or virtually (both pre-recorded and live). All field trips are led by an interpretive educator and meet Wisconsin Academic Standards for Science and Health, Grades K-12th.
“My high school students are learning about becoming educators themselves one day. After hearing about The Domes in the news, my students felt strongly about visiting.
