Play with a purpose!
Thinkery Field Trips provide a playful, hands-on experience for students, teachers, and chaperones to nurture creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills while building STEAM knowledge.
Our self-led field trips empower students and chaperones, letting them freely explore our galleries at their own pace in smaller, self-guided groups. Students engage more when exploring in these smaller groups rather than together as a whole class. Students enjoy additional hands-on interactions through Thinkery-facilitated activities during their visit.
Galleries and activities are aligned to Texas Education Agency guidelines for Pre-K–5th grade. A typical field trip is 2.5 hours, though teachers may choose the time they prefer to leave.
