STEM Field Trip Support

Stipends are available for schools to partially offset the cost of visiting BioTrek on a field trip.  The funds can offset the cost of admission, transportation, and other related materials. The application period for funding will begin in August 2021. There are limited funds so please apply early. For more information, please contact Edward Bobich at biotrek@cpp.edu.



If your plans change, please let us know immediately at biotrek@cpp.edu so we can cancel your field trip at no charge.
