SPECIAL NOTE: We will not be offering in-school programs (Farm to Factory or Exploring the Immigrant Experience) in the 2022-2023 school year. Please consider reserving one of our virtual field trips, which provide an in-depth look at a topic related to our themes (including farm-to-factory and immigration), with all of the energy and engagement of our in-person programs.
Our in-school programs supplement your curriculum or make a great pre-visit activity for trips to the TIHC. The programs are highly participatory - no bus fees required, because we come to you within a 50 mile radius of Lowell.
- Fee: $150 for first in-school program; $100 for successive same-day programs.
- Class Size: Up to 30 students per program. Teacher must be present in classroom during the program.
- Call us at 978-970-5080 to reserve your dates.
