Destination Field Trips

How much lake science can be taught at a 30-minute station? At the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams, quite a bit!

Due to COVID-19, the Lilly Center has moved destination field trips to an online format for the 2020-21 school year. The fundamentals are the same, though: high-quality, original content produced for K-3rd grade classrooms, complete with learning tools and resources. Curious to learn more? Email Sarah, our education program specialist.

The Lilly Center offers destination field trips for kindergarten-through-third grade at the Dr. Dane A. Miller Science complex on Grace College’s campus. All field trips are hands-on and experiential, as well as age appropriate. They are crafted to meet Indiana and Next Generation Science Standards.

Using place-based learning to connect kids to their local environment, destination field trips will give teachers access to learning tools like the virtual aquarium and augmented reality sand tables. You can choose one or any combination of our stations at your grade level, according to what best supplements your existing curriculum.
