For Teachers 

The Medicine Park Aquarium & Natural Sciences Center invites you and your students to immerse in a unique educational experience. We know you want to teach outside the box, and we are here to help.

Our Director of Education, Nicole Hill, is a wonderful resource. Please contact her at (580) 284-0679 or nhill@mpmns.org to ask questions or book your outing.

INTERACTIVE CONTENT

Our age-appropriate educational programming is aligned to Oklahoma State Teaching Standards and makes musty text come alive. We reinforce and expand upon the skill and knowledge sets that students have already mastered in the classroom.

MIND-BLOWING NATURAL MARVELS

Students will never look at their surroundings the same way after interacting with our creatures. Inspire a love of life-long learning and intellectual curiosity in just one afternoon.

Touch Tank Exhibit

Our latest addition is the Joyce Family Octopus, Tide Pool & Touch Tank exhibit. Visitors can interact with urchins, sea cucumbers, starfish, horseshoe crabs and more.

DISCOUNTED PRICING FOR SCHOOL GROUPS

We offer deeply discounted educational pricing. For only $5 per person, students can experience all that the Aquarium has to offer. We also have a grant program for qualifying Title I schools. Contact Nicole Hill to find out how we can help fund your field trip.

GRANT PROGRAMS

Our staff can work together with your school to seek out grant funding that would allow ongoing integration with our facility as part of your science curriculum. We have a partnership already in place with Cache Public Schools that spans multiple grades. We can help build something similar at your school. Contact Nicole Hill to find out how we can help.

HOME SCHOOL TEACHERS

We are here to support your education efforts as well. The organized group rate of $5 is offered to home school groups of 10 or more.  Coordinate your visit with our education team to customize the program to your needs. We are always open to ideas and feedback, so please share!
