To schedule and receive school group rates and programming, you must have 10 or more students and reserve and submit the reservation form 2 weeks in advance.
Field Trip Information
- Teachers are encouraged to contact Sci-Port’s education staff to plan their field trip. Sci-Port experts will help select the right programs, maximize time, and make amazing connections between curriculum standards and permanent exhibit galleries.
- Program scheduling may be limited from March through May due to the high volume of visits we typically experience during that time. Please advise the reservations team if there is preferred programming for the group.
- Programs occur between 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- Groups may arrive early and stay until the end of the day.
- Title I funding is available only to Caddo Parish Schools for this school year as per regulations set in place by grant funding guidelines. Questions about eligibility can be sent to email@example.com.
- Contact us at least 3 days before your visit for changes in your group size of more than ten students.
