Register your school's field trip

The Beckman Institute Open House is an excellent destination for a Friday field trip. We strongly encourage teachers to register in advance if they plan to bring students. We recommend a 5 to 1 ratio of chaperones to K-5 students and a 8 to 1 ratio for middle school students and older. Register in advance and be entered to win a slime party at your school with Beckman researchers!
