The Museum is offering free guided group tours (guided experiences) throughout the months of August and September.
These limited capacity group tours hit all of the same Next Generation Science Standards as the Museum’s typical school tour program and are lead by the same enthusiastic group of educators. Tours include outdoor activities (weather permitting).
Priority booking is given to students enrolled in Title 1 schools – federally subsidized schools with a high percentage of low-income students – and their families, as well as those who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. This program is part of the Rice Museum’s commitment to make earth science education more accessible to the residents of the communities the museum serves.
The Rice Museum has been bringing informal earth science experiences to the Portland metropolitan area and the surrounding region since 1997.
The Museum is actively seeking funding to expand the free tour program beyond the summer months. Donate now to help make this a reality.
This program is funded through a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation.
Advanced registration is required. These are mixed group (families) tours of up to 25 attendees per program.
Masks are required (for staff and attendees) at this event due to children under 12 not being able to be vaccinated at this time.
