Hands-On Science Lab

Classroom Field Trips to the Hands-On Science Lab with a special focus on 4th - 6th grade science standards.

The lab experiences are fun and engaging, active-learning experiments in chemistry, biology, and physical science. They are offered by university students studying science and education and are held in an actual laboratory on the CSU, Chico campus.  This popular and dynamic experience has been an effective learning tool for K-12 students and our preservice university students.  See a video of the HOL lab in action.

Our standard labs last 90 minutes and are offered Wednesday through Friday at 9:15am-10:45am, and 11:15am-12:45pm. The cost is $50 per class.

Maximum class size is 36 students unless otherwise approved. View a current list of labs being offered.

As space is limited, all lab registrations are limited to two (2) labs for the year. Register here.
