Resources for Educators
Whether you’re a teacher looking to arrange a field trip or a scholar exploring new ways to make behavioral science more accessible, we’re here to help.
Mindworks is invested in giving educators the resources they need to help teach behavioral science to a variety of audiences.
Mindworks is a great option for educators looking to take their students on a Chicago field trip to engage with hands-on learning opportunities.
If you are a high school teacher, college professor, or administrator interested in visiting Mindworks with your students, learn more about our current field trip capabilities below.
A field trip to Mindworks is a unique educational experience for undergraduate and graduate students interested in behavioral science, social psychology, behavioral economics, research methods, and related fields. Students will learn about key behavioral science concepts via interactive exhibits and get a hands-on look at research by participating in experiments. We also welcome clubs and sponsored student groups.
- Small groups (10 or fewer): please schedule a self-guided group visit via Acuity. Groups are welcome Wednesday-Friday, 11am-5pm.
- Large groups (10+ visitors): Please submit an inquiry to tell us about your group and start the conversation. Wednesdays and Thursdays are our preferred days for large group visits.
High School Groups
We welcome inquiries from high school groups with visitors 16 and older. We are currently booking group visits for fall 2023 and winter 2024. Please submit an inquiry to express interest and tell us about your group.
Visitors under 16
The content at Mindworks is best-suited for visitors 16 and older, so we are not a good fit for classes with younger students. Thank you for your interest!
