For Teachers

Education services at the Fairbanks Museum are designed to inspire, engage and encourage students to become curious about our natural world. These programs are developed by Museum educators to meet Next Generation Science Standards.

We work with schools, home school groups, clubs and community organizations. Our education services are designed for students in grades K - 8. These programs can be adjusted to meet the needs of older audiences and groups with mixed ages.

The Museum's learning experiences take place in our awe-inspiring galleries, state-of-the-art Lyman Spitzer Jr. Planetarium, Nature Classroom, Exploration Station, Science Lab and outdoor spaces.

You’ll discover the natural world with trained naturalists and scientists, including specialists in astronomy, meteorology, botany, and other earth sciences.

Your class or group can come to the Museum for a field trip or for repeated learning adventures. Fees include 1 FREE chaperone for every 5 students.
  • $5/student for a gallery tour
  • $8/student for 1 program
  • $10/student for 2 programs
  • Minimum rate of $80 apply to groups of fewer than 10 students.
Your students can also explore weather and astronomy and integrate real science through our citizen science initiative, the Community of Observers.
