STEAM Connections Field Trips are designed to be interactive, educational and hands-on for students of all ages. With several standards-aligned curriculums, classrooms get an exciting opportunity to explore science and technology in a way that also introduces STEM concepts to them in an informal learning setting.
*Generally, field trips for public schools, especially Title 1 designated schools are funded by Foundation Grants and the Montana Photonics Industry Alliance. Private schools and homeschool groups are charged a group rate. Funding may also be available through individual school’s Parent Advisory Committees (PACs).
