Virtual Field Trips

LASM is also now offering live, presenter-led virtual field trips! These Virtual Voyages for K-12 students focus on the themes of:

Egypt & Forensic Science, in which students will view and learn about LASM’s ancient Egyptian mummy

Astronomy, which includes a presenter-led tour of the seasonal sky

Art & Engineering, which includes a tour of the art exhibition Frank Hayden: Lift Every Voice that emphasizes the artist’s design process

Dinosaurs & Geology, which includes an encounter with an authentic Triceratops skull

Virtual field trips will also include engaging demonstrations and hands-on activities facilitated by LASM educators. Contact reservations@lasm.org for more information, fees, scheduling, and to customize your virtual experience! $100 per one-hour program.

Available to Grades: K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Art, Science as Inquiry, Life Science, History & Social Studies, English & Language Arts, Earth & Space Science, Science & the Environment

Robot Design Challenge

Students sharpen their critical thinking and problem- solving skills to build modular robots. Working in teams, they will use the Science and Engineering Practices to develop inventions that sense, compute, and act upon the world around them. As students design their robots, they actually build a program through hands-on coding. This class culminates in a race that challenges each group to create the smartest and fastest robot.

Layered Experience: Pairs well with Dream Big: Engineering Our World (Planetarium Show) and Engineering Encounters (Class).

Available to Grades: 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th

Program Type: Classes   Subject: Math, Physical Science
Cost: $6.75 per student & chaperone

The River Dynamics Experience

This exciting new program includes a visit to the LSU Center for River Studies and same-day, hands-on classes and programs at the Museum. On their tour of the CRS, students will explore a 3-dimensional model of the lower 190 miles of the Mississippi River, one of the most technologically-advanced models in existence. At the Museum, students will collaboratively design solutions to real-world environmental challenges by engaging with a state-of-the-art stream table. Participants will also view a related large-screen educational movie at the Museum. Activities are aligned with the Louisiana Student Standards for Science.

Through this partnership with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, this learning opportunity is available free-of-charge to 4th-to-12th-grade students on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email reservations@lasm.org to register as soon as possible!
