Student Name:

We have 3 seats available in this class.

Travel Tips: Parking options, you may reserve parking beforehand to know you have a spot for $20. The lot nearby is $20 but small and not guaranteed. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.

Materials Needed: none

Age: This activity is appropriate for grades 6-10, the MIT museum does not teach classes to children before 6th grade. Children are expected to have skills equivalent to this grade level.

Additional Activities: I have scheduled a Grungy groundwater class at the Edgerton Center. It will be scheduled from 10:00 am -1:00 pm the same day as this class. Once I confirm the date, you sign up for that class here.
