Classes are available in live (using Zoom) or pre-taped formats to accommodate your schedule and needs. Materials kits or lists are available for programs that include hands-on activities. Materials kit pricing is based on sets of 30 kits, desired program and total number of kits needed for your program. Multiple sets of kits can be purchased for large groups.

Activity-Based Programs

In our Activity-Based Programs, one of our educators will guide participants through an exploratory, hands-on activity to help them learn science concepts in a fun, exciting way. These programs can be done in either a virtual or prerecorded format and are based on TEKs. Prerecorded programs come with a teacher outline that includes background information, TEKs and a breakdown of the program by time. Materials kits are available for these programs.  

Weathering, Erosion and Deposition
(3rd - 8th Grade)

During this program, your students will be challenged to develop an understanding of the Earth processes of weathering, erosion and deposition. Your students will develop a working definition for these processes as they use earth materials to investigate each process. 

States of Matter
(K - 4th Grade)

In this program your students learn how and why things change from solid to liquid to gas and the properties of these states of matter. Students will develop a better sense of the physical world around them through this exploration of matter. 

Chemistry in a Bag
(6th - 12th Grade)

In this program your students will learn about both physical and chemical changes and get to observe chemical reactions up close. They will get a chance to formulate a simple experiment with the materials provided, and form and test their own hypothesis. 

Bird Beak Adaptations
(4th - 8th Grade)

Learn about animal adaptations in a hands-on way by looking at different birds, their food sources and their beaks. Your students will also get to examine some items from the Museum’s collection as they learn about the different ways birds have adapted to their environment. 

(Pre-K - 1st Grade)

Join us to learn all about the parts of a plant, the lifecycle of a plant and then do a colorful flower craft! This program is only available in a prerecorded format.  

Literacy-Based Programs (Pre-K – 2nd Grade)

Please note that these programs are only available live.


In this program, participants will listen to a skunk story, learn more about skunks using taxidermy from the Museum’s teaching collection and create an art project related to skunks. 


After reading a book about turtles, participants will learn more about these wonderful reptiles with specimens from the Museum’s teaching collection and create their own turtle artwork. 

Prairie Dogs

Participants will listen to a fun story about prairie dogs, learn about prairie dogs by observing specimens from the Museum’s teaching collection and create their own prairie dog project. 

Exhibit-Based Programs

Are you interesting in learning more about the Museum’s exhibits virtually? Then join us for a program based around one of our current or previous exhibits. Participants will get a tour of a Museum exhibit, and then, for most programs, an educator will lead participants through a hands-on activity related to the exhibit. These TEKS based programs are only offered in a prerecorded format and come with a teacher outline that includes background information, TEKs and a breakdown of the program by time. Materials kits are available for most of these programs.
