"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."
