Field Trips

Educational and Entertaining Experience

The Renaissance Center offers a unique field trip experience that is both educational and entertaining. The field trip options include an interactive science theatre where students are guided through the wonderful world of science. Students can also attend full dome animations in the Cybersphere. Students travel deep into the sea to swim the enchanted reef, blast off on the Cardboard Rocket to explore space, or cross the Atlantic to run with African animals. The Renaissance Center Field Trips are unique, hands-on experiences offered at affordable prices.

We are now booking Field Trips. Early booking is highly recommended.

Should the school have a policy that does not allow the school to pay for additional adults, then please collect the exact cash or check (no debit or credit cards) in advance for all additional adults and present upon arrival.  

Parents are not able to come on their own and pay on their own individually at the door.  All attending with your field trip must be approved as part of your group and counted in your totals to be either invoiced to the school or money collected in advance and presented at the door for the parents.
