For Educators

Informal Science Education

Join the thousands of teachers who make the Science Center their first choice for field trips!

Learning outside the classroom helps students relate in-school studies to potential careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math. That's why we established the Chevron Center for STEM Education and Career Development.

The Science Center is an essential part of the STEM education ecosystem, supporting classroom learning with hands-on, inquiry-based exploration. We provide engaging, one-of-a-kind experiences that speak to the natural curiosity in young people and that address state standards for science education in all grade levels.

  • Field trips to the Science Center provide the type of inspiration that carries students back to the classroom primed and ready to learn.
  • Our dynamic Science on the Road program brings high-energy educational programming to your location for kids in grades pre-K - 8.
  • Students have a chance to show off their science skills and compete for cool prizes at our STEM competitions.
  • We offer educator resources to help you connect your experience with our programs to what you do in the classroom.
  • Sharpen your STEM pedagogy skills with our Teaching Excellence Academy.
