K-12 Field trips to UA

There is no better method for introducing your students to real world science and mathematics than a visit to the UA campus. Some of the most prominent scientific research programs in the world are here, such as the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research and the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab. Many programs invite students into the laboratory where actual research is underway. Our Marine Discovery program provides a hands-on marine biology lesson in a real UA teaching laboratory.
