Kids and Educators Love Unfield Trips

"After visiting the Amazeum I am more curious about how things work and how things are operated. I really enjoyed this field trip because I got to learn while having fun! I hope to come back and learn more while having an amazing time!"

-4th grade student 

"My class loved attending the Amazeum. There are so many hands-on and sensory activities that they are able to participate in. It also allows the students to have a sense of freedom and free choice in what they get to do that is seldom seen in other places. We will be back next year!"

-Middle School Special Education teacher

"After visiting the Amazeum I am more curious about how magnets work on metal and not on other things. I am also wondering how the magnet has the force and how we could feel the force of it pushing. I am wondering how they make all the stuff like the smoke, grocery store, and the screen room and SpongeBob!"

-5th grade student

"The most beneficial part of the Amazeum 'Unfield Trip' was to see the science portion that reflected our 5th grade science standards. Specifically seeing the water section of the museum coincided with the lesson we talked about earlier int he year."

-5th grade teacher

"After visiting the Amazeum I am more curious about animation. I saw it in the Nickelodeon studio. The sound tower was super cool. I am also more curious in water and wind. That's why I like the water works. It's very cool that water can flow many different ways with wind. I also like puzzles. They can exercise your brain."

-4th grade student

"I can honestly say that the activities were perfect for all our kids. Throughout the year, we spent a lot of time working on Science portfolios and I wish we had been able to take the kids to the Amazeum earlier in the year. I think our portfolio projects would have been more beneficial to the students had they seen your amazing water tornado first. We definitely will be bringing our students again next year. To quote one of our most challenging students, 'This was the BEST field trip ever!' We would like to give a heartfelt 'THANKS!' to the Scott Family Amazeum staff who made this a very enjoyable experience and to everyone at the Walmart Foundation for funding this amazing interactive learning facility."

-Special Education teacher

"The Unfield Trip was beneficial for our students because they explored, played, role-played, discovered, laughed, and learned. Their faces and their questions prove that while at the Amazeum, they really are learning and wondering about things!"

-3rd grade teacher
