The Bakken

FIELD TRIPS AT THE BAKKEN

During each field trip, students explore the connections between history, 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 they are part of science by finding connections with artifacts, experiments, scientists, and inventors.
