Chaperone Role


Chaperones play an integral role during the field trip experience. We thank you for volunteering to make a difference in the lives of students. Below is a quick guide to help you succeed as a chaperone.

Trip Tips


Learn the names and faces of the students in your group and make sure they know your name.


Keep track of the students you’re chaperoning. Travel through exhibits as a group. Count your students before moving onto the next section of the museum.


While exploring each exhibit in the museum, engage students by asking thought-provoking questions. You don’t need to know the answers!

Museum Rules


Do not run in the museum. Walk carefully and be aware of your surroundings.


Use indoor voices at all times, so that other visitors may have the chance to enjoy the exhibits too.


Please respect museum property and handle each exhibit feature with care.


Share and take turns with each interactive piece.
