FIELD TRIPS AT THE BAKKEN

During each field trip, students explore the connections between science, engineering, and innovation in a dynamic, hands-on, guided inquiry-based workshop and either an interactive gallery tour of The Bakken Museum exhibits or a visit to the nearby Pavek Museum of Broadcasting. Students learn that when they wonder, try, discover, and share, they are engaging in the science, engineering, and/or innovation process. On the NEW Bakken tours, groups of students explore the connections between science, engineering, inspiration, and innovation through The Bakken Museum's interactive galleries. Students will engage in hands on challenges and interactives designed to spark curiosity, create conversations, and awaken the innovator in each of them.
