STEM Field Trips

Program Details

Northeastern University is proud to offer Field Trip experiences for 4th to 8th grade students throughout the academic year.  The field trip is free of cost; however, schools are expected to provide their own food. Bus transportation will be provided to Boston schools only.

If you are interested in coming for a field trip, please view our applications page.
Applications for each academic year open at the end of July and close in September.
Applications for the Fall 2021 – Spring 2022 school year are now open! We will be offering in-person field trips to Northeastern, reverse field trips (where we visit your schools), and virtual field trips.

If you have questions regarding the field trip, please email Nicolas Fuchs.
