Field Trips at Living Computers

Living Computers: Museum + Labs is committed to providing hands-on, immersive learning experiences in computer science to all K-12 students.

*LCM+L requires an adult-to-child ratio of 1:5 for children under 10 years, and 1:8 for children ages 11-17 years. All chaperones must be 18 years or older. Each Field Trip Package includes admission for only the minimum number of Chaperones required to make ratio.

For those groups with limited time or varying ages, we also have an ADMISSION ONLY rate that grants students access to our exhibits for $8 per student. ADMISSION ONLY rates do not include a facilitated activity or tour, but do guarantee you a space for brown-bag lunch.
