Traveling Science Center


The Illinois Natural History Survey Traveling Science Center is a 320 square foot mobile classroom featuring informative, engaging exhibits on biodiversity and natural resources that visits schools and communities across Illinois.

Visitors learn about the types of habitats and species diversity of their region, as well as ways to protect against threats to that diversity.

Since 2006, we have visited over 150 communities and 200 public events and provided structured school programs for up to 30,000 students each year.
