The field trip was well organized and informative. Our host was wonderful. However, there weren’t enough hands on activities for our students. One station was not functioning properly and we would have benefitted from a demonstration from one of the training center instructors or workers.

The facility is very clean and modern, it is filled with very interesting and some interactive exhibits. The staff are also very attentive, helpful, and flexible. Segio and Amy did a wonderful job leading my large group of 33 high schoolers through the tour and activities. Michael from Field Trip Factory was also an amazing help in scheduling and figuring out logistics for this trip.
