Each workshop is designed to meet Utah’s Core Curriculum. Download our Field Trip Brochure or see descriptions below.

Capacity: 15-120 students

Time: 30 minutes (included in your 2 hour visit)


Story Time (Preschool) Children will listen to a short story and perform a hands-on activity designed to get them on their feet!

Rhythms of the World (Grades K-5) Students exercise creative thinking and movement skills through play:

Ghana (Grades K-2) Learn about the West African Country of Ghana while singing a song in a native language called Akan.

The Essential Role of Bees (Grades K-5) Discovery Gateway’s Utah Family Farm activity will help your students understand the vital role bees play in the production of hundreds of specialty crops grown on more than 15,000 farms in Utah!

Simple Machines (Grades K-5) Students will explore Discovery Gateway‘s simple machines, such as planes, pulleys, levers, wedges, and screws, and then apply them to real life use.

Rockin’ Roller Coaster (Grades 3-4) What makes roller coasters so much fun? Is it the length, the height, or the speed? Students will investigate by conducting fun roller coaster science experiments while exploring gravity and motion.

Reaction Time (Grade 5) The Reaction Time workshop covers Standard I of the fifth-grade science core-matter, physical changes, and chemical reactions while providing students with an exciting hands-on lab experience. Note: this is a 3 HOUR TRIP with a 45 minute assembly and a 30 minute lab.
