The SEE Science Center's programs offer concrete interactive experiences in an informal learning environment. The programs all have hands-on components and provide an opportunity for students to interact with our staff and their peers. For over twenty years SEE has been accommodating groups of all ages and sizes; please call us for help with your field trip planning.

Here is what some students and teachers recently had to say about SEE programs:

I was very excited to go to this museum. It was a blast! I hope we can go to it again.
Carrie, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

I liked all the details in the LEGO Millyard Project. I like how they had real water and every little detail like the guy under the bridge and the rats.”
Jamie, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

Dear Becky,
Thank you for showing us those crazy chemical reactions.

Jon, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

“Dear Becky,
Thank you for taking us to the chem. Lab. I really liked the chemical reaction that you did, it was really cool. I am going to be a science teacher when I grow up.”

Lindsey, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

"We so much enjoyed our visit to the SEE Museum. ... Thank you both for a terrific field trip. Hope to see you next year."
Slimy Combo, 2nd grade teacher

“Dear Peter,
I want to thank you for showing the class and I around. All the inventions were really cool. My favorite invention was the electrical generator thing. Especially when I got zapped! The harmonograph was pretty cool too. Overall it was lots of fun and I hope I can come back soon.”

Zachary, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

“Dear Peter,
Thank you for showing us the Harmonograph, the moonwalk and the electric generator. I had a good time. I really liked the electric generator. I can’t wait to go again.”

Cody, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

“I had a great time! Thank you for showing us the LEGO Millyard Project. It was really creative. Making the little parts of the town was really fun and doing the scavenger hunt was fun too.”
Jamie, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

“Dear Adele,
Thank you for helping my class to build a LEGO structure that had something to do with the HUGE LEGO Millyard Project. The slides, table saws and looms were really cool.

Cassie, Grade 6 Claremont Middle School

“To Mr. G.
Thank you for coming. I loved how you made an AWESOME chemical reaction, when you put soap and the chemicals and made a foamy reaction. I also liked how you made a big fire reaction. My friend and I said, “SWEET”! Science RULES!!”

Bridget, 3rd grade, Riddle Brook Elementary Bedford

“Dear Peter,
Thank you for coming to our class. Your presentation was wonderful. I really liked when you made the yellow foam. I also thought it was cool when you froze the hot dog and broke it. I learned that a chain of molecules is called a polymer.”

Elias, 2nd grade Thorton’s Ferry

“Dear Peter,
Thank you for coming in for a presentation. It was exciting. When I grow up I want to be a Scientist. I liked when you made an explosion with a ping-pong ball. I learned that liquid nitrogen could freeze stuff. Thank you again” Devin “P.S. Science is cool!!”
