Free for NC Educators



and one guest!



The North Carolina Museum of Life and Sciences in Durham is hosting Teacher Appreciation Day on Saturday, August 27. We will be offering free admission for public and private K-12 teachers (with school ID) and one guest.



Come see the Museum through the eyes of your students! Climb inside StarLab, our portable planetarium, to learn about the constellations; marvel at the sight (and taste!) of our unbeatable liquid nitrogen ice cream; learn about the many programs the Museum has to offer for your grade level through a sampling of the materials and activities we use in our focused field trips; meet the staff who facilitate our educational programs; and let us thank you for all the hard work you do!

  2. Hi Kelly, my name is Faun and I am a student in EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. Your post reminded me of a place we have in Mobile that is similar. It is called the Exploreum. It is a great place for children to come and explore all the aspects of life and science. It is a frequent field trip destination for most schools around here. I think it is great anytime students and teachers can learn together and get of the classroom environment for a little while. I really enjoyed reading your post.

  3. Hey Kelly! Levi again, just read this post about the Museum of Life and Science and the free admission for teachers. It sounds like an awesome place. I remember going to the Smithsonian with my family as a kid when my family took a trip there. I was wondering, can you tell me a little bit about your experience at the North Carolina Museum?

  4. Hi Kelly! This is Daisy again from EDM310 at the University of South Alabama. Like Faun said, we have this place in Mobile called the Exploreum. It teaches students about certain topics. They change the topic once every few months. I think this is great that teachers get to experience for free. Teachers can get ideas for their classes, but also learn!
