Teacher Open House

Teacher Open House

Thursday, October 17 

Join fellow educators for an evening out exploring the RMSC! Sip cocktails from our cash bar and enjoy complimentary hors d’oeuvres while networking with local educators and exploring the endless learning opportunities offered by the RMSC. There’s a lot going on and we want you to leave armed with the countless ways our programs can complement your classroom teaching.

Throughout the evening, engage in RMSC experiences that will ignite the curiosity of your students – explore exhibits, watch a Planetarium show, catch a live science demo. You’ll also get an exclusive look at our featured exhibit, SciFiTech, with a tour from our exhibit team. This interactive exhibit chronicles our progression from science fiction to science fact and illuminates emerging technologies that are just now showing up on our cultural radar. You’ll even have the chance to plan your field trip with staff on site to set up a reservation and answer any questions you may have.

All guests will receive an RMSC tote as they enter to fill with info about RMSC field trip opportunities and resources from educational supply vendors throughout the night. Enter our raffle to win free prizes including Planetarium passes, cross country ski rental packages at CNC, and a family membership to the RMSC!


Register ahead and you could win a class field trip!
When you register ahead of the evening, you will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a class field trip of up to 30 kids to RMSC! But remember, the winner must be present at the Open House to win.

Register your whole school (and show up) and you could win Dunkin Donuts for your staff!  We’re sweetening the deal and making it into a competition. The school with the most educators to register and attend the RMSC Teacher Open House wins bagels and donuts for their staff.
