Wow, that's a lot of students Natural History Museum of Utah! How many student tours does your museum do in a year?
Another school year field trip season has come to an end at NHMU. This year we hosted almost 44,000 students through the field trip program, who each got to explore the state’s official museum of natural history and participate in educational programming.
Classes practiced technical skills by building robots, discovered new information about dinosaurs and habitats, built bridges between cultures and countries by exploring the Maya exhibit, learned about traditional Maya art with Las Hermanas Luum, and developed a growing curiosity for the natural world.
NHMU's field trip team works tirelessly to manage a high volume of young visitors from around Utah and they are rewarded daily by faces full of wonder. The Museum’s mission is to illuminate the natural world and the place of humans within it, and reaching so many young, enthusiastic students each year through field trips plays a huge part in our success.
As usual, teacher reviews were glowing: “Thank you for the opportunity for our students to come and be able to use a hands on approach to exploring the things they have been learning all year. The staff does an excellent job and we appreciate you all!”
