In addition to touring the Exhibit Hall and visiting the Planetarium, your group may also choose to sign up for an Enrichment Lab. These 45-minute, hands-on classroom programs will enhance your students’ experience with interactive lessons led by a Eugene Science Center educator, designed for up to 20 students at a time. Larger groups may be split into 2 or more sections and rotated among other field trip options (Exhibit Hall, Planetarium).

$30 minimum cost for up to 15 students; $2 per additional student.

Labs are subject to instructor and classroom availability and may not be available on all days.

Choose your grade level to see which Enrichment Labs will work best for your students.

Balance Lab

Students examine toys that use center of gravity in surprising ways, leading to impossible-looking balancing acts and unexpected motion.

Bug Lab

Students will classify insects and other invertebrates into different families, then learn about specialized body parts and other adaptations that allow bugs to move, find food, and eat.
