March 2023: We are only offering virtual lectures and/or tours at this time. Upcoming virtual tours can be registered for below (anyone can attend).

Our next virtual tour will be available to register below once scheduled. A separate form to request virtual tours for larger groups (10 or more people, with the exception for teachers with smaller sized classes) will be posted by the end of March. This page will be updated when we resume in-person tours (we'll continue to offer virtual tour options indefinitely). We appreciate your patience as we work to meet our outreach demands.


Here are some bonus videos to introduce you to our facility before you come for a tour or have your virtual one. These videos are different than our virtual tours and can help tour participants become more engaged by introducing them to topics in advance to create a small amount of familiarity behind them.
