College Programs

We offer high level, unique, and interactive programs and field trips for college students and faculty. Most programs offered include a visit to our center, but we can come to your class, or take students on a fun and educational field trip. You can choose from our existing programs or work with us to develop tailor made programs that fit your needs.

Call or email Cassandra at or (928) 779-1745 to discuss your program needs and costs for these custom programs.
