School & Homeschool Tours
"Thank you so much for the awesome field trip for my 3-4 class! Your programs kept all students interested and engaged, with a terrific balance between learning time and active time. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that you tailored each program to match the science curriculum in each grade level. The interactive displays were excellent, and we all loved the video in the huge drill bit that took us back in time through the layers of the earth.
Many of the kids went home to tell their families that they should go there! I will be telling my teacher friends, too. Thanks so much for having us. You all made it super easy."
-Cindy from Griffiths-Scott School

Grades 1 to 9
Rig Walk: Exploring Mechanics
“Rig Walk” begins with a tour of the Leduc #1 Museum, where students will examine models of rigs, both old and new. Our interactive exhibits allow students to examine structures, technologies and mechanics utilized in the field. Outside, students will climb aboard a retired derrick and assume the role of professional roughnecks! The program concludes with a few rounds of non-competitive trivia. “Rig Walk” is designed to aid students in their understanding of modern mechanics by providing real-life examples, hands-on learning experiences and opportunities to engage in safe play.
Grades 10 to 12
