Field Trips

Mindport is a wonderful location for a school field trip for students of all ages – kindergarten through college. Many of our interactive exhibits demonstrate scientific principles. Others evoke outdoor experiences in a controlled environment, giving students a chance to experience natural phenomenon on a small, observable scale. Our space also features rotating visual arts displays that are friendly to visitors of all ages as well as unique instruments for making music.

Mindport offers opportunities for students to engage in informal education and exploration. If desired, we can also provide ideas for shaping a visit to Mindport around curriculum-connected themes and standards.

With advanced planning, we can make sure that your visit is as enjoyable and as educational as possible. Please click on the “Request to Visit” button and fill out the form.  Your information will be forwarded to a staff member who will be in contact with you to help plan your visit. We look forward to your visit!

Marbling Workshops

To coincide with our current exhibit in the gallery, we are offering two paper marbling workshops this December. All materials and supplies are provided, including optional aprons, disposable gloves and surgical masks. However, be sure to wear studio-appropriate clothing (stuff that isn’t too special-that can get stained or dirty) and closed-toe shoes.

Cost: Sliding Scale from $20-$60. Pay what you are able, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Covid Practices: Masks optional.  The workshop happens in the Mindport shop, which is a cozy space with no windows. However, it is equipped with good ventilation and air purifiers.

Register by filling out the contact form to the right, and be sure to let us know which of the following two dates you prefer:

December 11, 6:30-8:30 pm

December 18, 6:30-8:30 pm
