The bus sponsorship was GREATLY appreciated as we may not have been able to attend otherwise. Although my students live only a mile away, MANY reported this as their first visit. They LOVED seeing how their class content was reflected in hands-on experiences. Many “ohs” and “ahs” … very meaningful!!!

Thank you for the learning opportunity at the Michigan Science Center for our students with special needs. Your facility and staff were accommodating to the various styles of learning our students require.

I just wanted to follow up with you regarding the field trip that you granted to A.L. Holmes Pre-K last week. The trip was wonderful! Thank you so much for helping us out and providing us with such top notch service from beginning to end. The children and staff all enjoyed everything that the center had to offer.
My group especially enjoyed the gear automation/assembly line. A few months back I had written a grant to obtain a box of Pre-K friendly gears for each child in my classroom. Well, a couple of weeks prior to our visit at the Michigan Science Center, I received the grant and my children were able to each take home a box of their own gears.
They love the gears and have been learning to assemble them to make them turn and work together. So, when they saw the set-up at your facility they correlated the two and the light went off in their little heads! That was a fun moment! I realized at that point that all of my madness does have a purpose!

Detroit International Academy for Young Women enjoyed exploring at the Michigan Science Center. The students had a great time and the teachers thought it was a great idea to have activities related to M-STEP to get the students prepared for testing. Again, thank for the opportunity and our school looks forward to visiting again.
