Field Trip Science Membership

Let us make it easy for you to do science outside this year


Does this sound like you?

I want more hands-on outdoor learning in our routine, but I don’t know where to start.

I struggle to plan high quality field trips that appeal to ALL of my learners.

I long to see my teens learning alongside other teens.

In our membership, you will:

  • Feel less overwhelm because the planning is done for you.
  • Feel confident with lessons developed by professional educators.
  • Get outside with field trips focused on experiential science.
  • Meet all your learners’ needs with activities that are scalable.
  • Build connection because activities can be done with groups.
  • Get ongoing support from The Field Trip Academy.

Join us with hands-on activities delivered right to your inbox.

Here's what you'll get each month:

A Plan

  • Field trip plan that is low-cost and works where you live.
  • Step-by-step guides so you don't have to do the planning or instruction.
  • Family-friendly videos that teach science lessons and give tutorials on how to do everything.
  • Newsletters that get you organized each month.

A Purpose

  • Hands-on lessons so your kids can explore and experiment.
  • Community science projects that give your kids the chance to input data to help scientists.
  • Nature journaling prompts that help your learners practice art, math, and writing.
  • At-home activities that deepen learning.

A Support System

  • Scalable lessons so that you can do field trips with kids of all ages in your family group or co-op.

Sounds amazing! I can't wait to start taking nature-focused field trips with my family!
