Educators and community groups may request a field trip/tour of MHIR. We aim to be flexible with groups according to their needs. Examples of visit activities have included tours, career panels, hands-on activities like specimen stations with microscopes, and topic-specific sessions. In general visits are usually 2 hours long. We can typically fit up to 50 people in our conference room but smaller groups (no more than 30 at a time) are preferred if hands-on activities will take place.
Our Education Coordinator will work with you to determine feasibility of a visit and to determine a mutually convenient date and time for the visit. Due to staffing resources we cannot guarantee that a field trip can be scheduled. All student groups must have at least one chaperone and students must have their guardian complete a release form for the visit to MHIR, to be provided by the coordinator once the visit date has been set.
**At this time, because of COVID restrictions, students are not allowed to enter MHIR Research Facilities, and so field trips are not being scheduled. If you would like to request a virtual career panel or event, please Contact Us! We will do our best to accommodate requests based on schedules and availability.**
