EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH (continued)
There are several educator resources available at the Monnig Meteorite Gallery. These resources currently include the following:
Teacher Pre-Visit and Post-Visit Program
Meteorite-Related Loan Kits
Reservations are required and can be made for groups of students in Grades 3 - 12. To insure that we can accommodate your group on your desired date, we recommend that you call or email to make your reservations as early in the school year as possible.
Days & Hours
Tuesday through Friday between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Currently there is no charge for our educational meteorite program for school groups. This is due to the generosity of Oscar E. Monnig.
Group Size &
Structure of Tours
Due to staffing and facility constraints, at the present time we limit school groups to no more than 100 students. To accommodate larger groups than this, we recommend that you divide your group up and make reservations for the smaller groups on separate days. Groups larger than 30 but less than 100 will be divided into smaller groups and will rotate through the tour and the hands-on inquiry science activities. A sample rotation schedule if provided below.
Sample Rotation Schedule for 100 students:
