Field Trips

Whitaker Center offers Field Trips!

Whether your group plans to explore interactive STEAM-based exhibits housed within our multi-level UPMC Science Center, experience an awe-inspiring documentary in our four-story Select Medical Digital Cinema, or participate in a coding lesson in our PNC Innovation Zone, Whitaker Center guarantees a hands-on day of learning!

Returning this year! We will be offering Guided STEM Lessons with our Whitaker Center Education Staff! Students can take part in a guided STEM lesson in our STEM Design Studios with one of our educators during their field trip to the science center. Adults and their students will meet a STEM Educator at the classroom doors and will begin the chosen lesson or inquiry-based challenge. These engaging activities will allow students to explore important problem-solving strategies and critical thinking skills, while gaining an appreciation for STEM. The lesson will be between 30-45 minutes in length and is for a maximum of 30 students per session.
