Engage students with fun, hands-on exploration and STEAM activities.
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.
Galleries and activities are aligned to Texas Education Agency guidelines for Pre-K–5th grade.
Requests for the school year are now open!
