Workshops and Labs

Quick Details for Group Labs
NOTE: Due to COVID-19 Burpee Lab Experiences are limited in size and quantity

Enhance your field trip in our STEM lab to get hands on and deeper into specific topics.  Each engaging lab features activities and investigations to reinforce the science concepts of our tour.  Our labs are aligned to NGSS Scientific and Engineering Practices as well as the NGSS DCI.  


preK-12 options


Most Labs & workshops last approximately 60 min (contact us for more details) and pair well with a museum tour for a 120 min experience at Burpee.  Some labs for older students are longer (ex: 2 hours). You can choose if you want to add a tour or only do the lab experience.  Contact us for assistance in planning.

Fees & Pricing:

Workshops and Labs that are 60 min. cost $5 per student (teachers and chaperones are included at no charge)

Workshop/Lab Topics:

From dinosaurs to reptiles, and from Native American culture to windows to our local watersheds and wilderness…Burpee offers revamped workshops and labs that are aligned to NGSS science expectations.

If your group plans to have lunch at the museum, you will need to bring sack lunches and reserve the lunchroom as part of your visit.
