Take their education outside of the classroom and to one of our five immersive venues! Thanksgiving Point Field Trips involve inquiry-based science exploration and are designed with the Utah State Core Curriculum in mind.
Let us come to you! Thanksgiving Point offers free STEM-based, hands-on learning activities to third-grade and eighth-grade classrooms across Utah. Enhancing the Utah State Science Core Curriculum, these programs engage students and bring their education to life.
We value and support all educators! With professional learning experiences, tools to support Utah educators, and more, our resources help broaden your students’ minds and connect them with the natural world.
