The purpose of this offer is to allow pastors and teachers to explore our Science Center to see if they might be interested in scheduling a group fieldtrip or speaking presentation. For homeschool teachers/parents: this offer only applies to home school group leaders wishing to explore the potential of a group tour, not to individual homeschooling parents/teachers.
