K - 3rd Grades: STEM Center
Young children are encouraged to engage in free play activities in the Museum's STEM center. The STEM center boasts a reading corner, building and construction activities, and a gear wall all designed to spark the imagination of young learners. The Museum staff require a 1:5 ratio of chaperones to students for the STEM center and all students must stay with a chaperone at all times. The Museum uses the California History Social-Science Framework to develop activities and programs.

The Museum does not offer guided tours to K through 3rd grade students. The Museum's Discovery Games are scavenger hunts created for school groups on a self-guided tour in the museum. They are a fun way to enjoy the history of the Seabees and Civil Engineer Corps. Download the scavenger hunt for your field trip: Discovery Game for Young Students [PDF, 785 KB]
