Field Trips

Field Trips at The Leonardo

Field trips are our staff’s favorite because they get to see wide-eyed students immerse themselves in experiences that prompt them to ask the big questions and explore what impacts their lives and their world. Through a blend of stimulating science exhibits, awe-inspiring art installations, and hands-on workshops, students develop critical-thinking skills, find creative solutions and gain new approaches to problem solving. These experiences support Utah State standards for grades K-12 and integrate principles from science, technology, engineering, math, and the arts.

 

Sponsored field trips

Limited sponsorship funds are available on a first-come first-served basis for workshops and self-guided field trips.

Leonardo’s Permanent Exhibits

During a self-guided field trip, classes explore The Leonardo exhibits and installations at their own pace. Students interact with cutting-edge exhibits that encourage them to examine the role of science, art, and technology in their lives. Teachers are encouraged to use the provided field trip guides and lesson plans to relate the experience to what they are teaching in their classrooms. Self-guided field trips last 1 ½ – 2 hours and cost $4.00 per student. Special Traveling Exhibits are not included in this ticket price but we can offer exclusive discounted pricing for K-12 field trips, please call for details.

Get the most out of your visit by adding an in-depth workshop to your self-guided field trip for an additional $2.50 per student, total $6.50 per student. (Allow 3 ½ hours.)
