Expeditions Workshops

*Advance Registration Required* 

For ages 6-12 years old

Expeditions is a workshop series offered to home school families in southern Nevada. These exciting classes provide a way for families to learn together and gain science enrichment through interactive, hands-on activities that support a wide array of developmental science skills and concepts as well as learning styles.

Expeditions workshops return to the Museum beginning on February 26, 2019. This year’s Expeditions workshops will have plenty of science for everyone with unique guest facilitators throughout the year.

Expeditions workshops are held on the last Tuesday of every month from 1:00 pm-2:15 pm. Advanced registration is required. 

Individual workshop prices:

Members: $4 (per person)
Must be an LVNHM member before registering and provide a membership ID number.

Non-members: $6 (per person)

Expeditions Registration and Attendance Policy

Registration will be available on the first day of that month’s workshop. Since the demand for our Expeditions workshops is high, registration and payment is due at the time of booking and will be accepted until the class is full. If registration is complete, there is a waitlist option. Please Note: Cancellation required within 48 hours of registration for a refund. If you do not cancel within 48 hours of registration, there will be no reimbursement or credit provided.

Participants should arrive 15 minutes early to get checked in as all classes will start promptly at 1:00 pm. Workshop payment does not include Museum exploration.

The Museum is located at 900 North Las Vegas Blvd. It is next to Cashman Center and just south of Washington Ave. No food or drink is permitted in the Museum. Space is minimal, so we ask if you are participating in the workshop with your children that you please refrain from bringing smaller children who are not participating.
