Your generosity not only fuels our essential programs but also helps sustain the daily operations of our museum, ensuring a safe, welcoming, and enriching environment for all visitors.

In-museum field trip opportunities for up to 90 students per trip. Includes a curriculum-based educational program chosen by the teacher, as well as a planetarium show, and play on the exhibit floor.

Outreach Programs

In-school educational programs that meet National and State curriculum science standards. Programs are provided to schools in 24 counties across East Tennessee, helping teachers expand their existing science curriculum with hands-on learning.

Steam Education Programs

Up to two hours of educational programming, presented at a school. The program includes five interactive stations demonstrating the value of hands-on STEAM learning, designed with the entire family in mind.
