We coordinate a variety of educational programming on-site at The Plant and throughout Chicago.
We’re always happy to host school field trips or even visit classrooms to teach students about the science and social value behind our work. We’ve hosted school groups from all over the country!
“Truly, the amount of time we spent with our leaders was perfect! The Lab on many levels was inquiry based, hands on, engaging and challenging. Thanks to both of you for your generosity of time and talent. Today was life changing for me and will no doubt be on the top of the list for my students’ all-time favorite field trips!” – Teacher at Guerin College Prep
“Thank you so much again!! The kids were super excited and full of energy, which was wonderful to see. Thank you so much for this opportunity!”
