Sponsored by San Antonio PBS affiliate KLRN, our traveling museum will convert your gymnasium or facility into a Natural History Museum.
This exhibit is not only exciting; it is highly educational.
A comprehensive curriculum for grades Kinder through 6th grade, written in both Spanish and English, is available for all participating schools. Each curriculum covers numerous TEKS. Visit the KLRN website to download your free curriculum - http://www.klrn.org/dinosaur-george/
Our staff will lead your students through an initial tour of our exhibit and then allow them to begin working on their scavenger hunt pages (supplied by us).
It takes approximately 45 minutes to experience the exhibit, but you can decide how long each group can stay. And the easy to read, and highly visual, signs will insure that students of any age will have a complete understanding of each exhibit piece.
We'll arrive the day prior to your event.
Set up normally takes 3 to 5 hours, depending on your facility and layout.
Removal normally takes 3 to 4 hours, depending on your facility and layout.
During your event our staff will set up and host a small gift shop area withing the museum. At the end of your event we will present a cash donation of 20% of all sales from your event. Our organization provides staffing to sell the items and collect the money. You are not required to provide any assistance. We handle everything and you receive 20%! It's an excellent way to help offset the costs of bringing our traveling museum to your campus or community.
This amazing program allows you to choose up to 5 students to come into the museum and work "behind the barriers" with our team. Their role is to hold special exhibit pieces and allow the other students to touch each piece.
These students wear special vests, which we supply, to designate them as "Museum Ambassadors".
