Fieldtrips for Schools and Group Events

We offer Fieldtrips and Events at our Lab in Ashburn or we can bring our programs to your location (a Pop-up Lab)

Field Trips to our facility:

  • Bring your group to our well-equipped kid-sized science lab.
  • Think hands-on science activities complete with white lab coats, beakers, test tubes, microscopes, a “glow cave,” a shadow wall, a robotic dog, an optical illusion mirror and so much more!
  • Events are 60-90 minutes.
  • For a longer outing, consider combining a visit to our lab with a visit to the Broadlands Nature Center or Trailside Park — both are right up the street.
  • Maximum group sizes are 24 for preschool groups, 30 for K-5th grade.

A Pop Up Lab at your facility:

What are Pop-Up Labs?

  • Pop-up labs bring our award-winning, hands-on science center experience to your school, facility or fundraiser.
  • We provide the equipment, expertise, planning, setup, and cleanup; you provide the curious kids!
  • We offer labs for small groups or large; one class or an entire grade; SOL-focused or open-ended play.
  • Simply review and select from our Lab Menu and we’ll serve up the STEM experience that’s right for your group.
  • Have a particular SOL or theme in mind?  Our team can serve up a narrowed list of options to simplify your choices.

How Does it Work?   Our labs typically run for one hour:  we lead with an exciting science demonstration and introduce the hands-on stations (10 mins), then lead the students through the stations (45 minutes), then regroup for a recap (5 mins). 

We’ve done programs for groups large and small, including the Air & Space Museum, Smithsonian Discovery Theater, churches, preschools and corporate events. We would love to work with your group too!

We have a choice of Themes and Topics for you to choose from, also we can customize a theme as needed. Please check out the Pop Lab Menu
