Homeschools and Small Groups
We offer discounts for homeschool families, field trips for small groups (5-20 students), and virtual field trips for EVERYONE! For a description of virtual offerings, scroll to the bottom of this page. Our virtual field trips can be purchased by anyone- not just schools.
Prices and Guidelines
Whether you are a homeschool group, a church group, a nonprofit, or just a smaller class from a public school, any youth-based group with 5-20 students (not including chaperones) is eligible to fill out the form below to receive discounted rates to visit for a self-guided field trip!
Please submit your request with at least 2 weeks of advance notice. You are not guaranteed the discounted rate without email confirmation from our education department. We cannot give available dates or book field trips over the phone or via email.

Virtual Field Trips
Individuals and small groups can purchase pre-recorded videos that come with printable accompanying activities for optimal learning and endless fun! Our videos and activities are designed to meet Oklahoma Academic Science Standards for K-12 students and can be purchased by anyone. Once you receive your video materials, you will have access to them through the end of the following month (for example, if you purchase in October, you'll have access through November 30).
Prices and Guidelines
In an effort to ensure that homeschooled children receive similar field trip opportunities as students in traditional, larger school groups, we offer discounted rates to homeschool students and their educators.
To receive the discount with no reservation, purchase your tickets in person during regular operating hours and provide proof of homeschooling. This can be anything that shows you are a homeschool student, including, but not limited to, a student ID number or a letter of intent to homeschool (generally sent to your local public school).

Learn all about the diversity of turtles from Oklahoma to the ocean!

Into the EcoZone gives students an exciting look at our ocean's biodiversity through the exploration of habitats featured in the Oklahoma Aquarium's EcoZone gallery. This gallery primarily features habitats that serve as "nurseries" for our oceans, like coral reefs, rocky coasts, tide pools, kelp forests, and marshes. We also explore the important ecological connections between these habitats and the animals who live there. We even take a deep dive into the midnight zone to learn what lurks in the darkest, deepest parts of our oceans! Students who participate in this virtual field trip will be able to evaluate the importance of different ocean habitats and how their inhabitants have adapted to each.
Video Length: 21 minutes
