Request a Visit

Our outreach program is a big program in a small space. We are able to book one lesson for one group per day during public school hours; simultaneous sessions are not possible.

  • Note that our field trips are available to groups ONLY; there is no single child sign-up. (Homeschooling groups are expected to arrange for the appropriate number of students within their organizations; the Edgerton Center will not register individual families.)

  • Sessions will be booked for groups of 12 to 24 students. For larger numbers, please submit request in the Notes section at the end of this form.

  • Groups must be able to get to campus on their own as we do not cover travel. (The program is available for no cost to school- and homeschooling-groups.)

  • Sessions book early and fill fast.

Please let us know if there are any children in the group that may require some additional assistance. If additional school staff (one-to-ones, school nurse, etc.) will be attending, indicate that here.
