Field Trips at The Bakken

During each field trip, students explore the connections between history, science and engineering through The Bakken Museum’s interactive galleries.  Students learn that they are part of science by finding a connection with the artifacts, experiments, scientists and inventors highlighted in the museum.  In addition to guided tours, The Bakken Museum offers a variety of activities during your field trip. Each workshop is specially designed to meet your grade level needs.
