Science Trek 2020

Reveal the Incredible

April 24-25, 2020

3rd - 5th Graders


We are excited for the 31st year of Science Trek! This annual event is a gateway for young scientists to learn more about the sciences and explore possibilities for the future. An overnight adventure at the Idaho Museum of Natural History, Science Trek has given thousands of 3rd through 5th-grade children the opportunity to explore the frontiers of science with premier scientists at Idaho State University.

Come and join this year’s adventures in Science Trek on Friday, April 24, 2020. Engage in a night of thrilling scientific exploration. Work with scientists in Anthropology, Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Geosciences, Information Technology, Nuclear Engineering, Microbiology, Physics, and Technology. Explore and investigate fascinating new possibilities in science.

Roll out your sleeping bag, then enjoy a science show, hands-on activity, movie, and pizza. Settle into sleep with the saber-tooth cat, ground sloth, sharks, dinos, and other amazing critters in our gallery. All Trekkers receive an official Science Trek 2020 T-shirt.
