Natural History Museum of Utah -
Field Trip Educator Workshops

Do you want to give your students a field trip that they will talk about for years to come? Come learn how to prepare for your visit to the Natural History Museum by engaging in pre, during and post visit experiences while we explore our new state of the art facility, the Rio Tinto Center. We are eager to share it with you! Register today for a workshop to learn more about our new Self-Guided Field Trips. They are based on National and State standards. They incorporate the nature of science and science process skills in order to create authentic, student driven field trips that will inspire exploration, discussion, and enthusiasm. Spend two hours with us and experience a few of the most enjoyable hours you will have all week; and you’ll receive two re-licensure points!
