We had a great start to our first 8 months in business here in Colorado Springs!
As a new, and growing, Colorado Springs museum and educational learning center for kids, kids and adults with disabilities, and senior citizens, the response to our programs and exhibits has been overwhelming, and interest continues to grow.
Schools from Denver, though the Springs, and down to Pueblo are finding that our ability to provide a fun and exciting field trip experiences for their students is greatly enhancing the in-classroom experience. The addition of a trip to downtown Colorado Springs and the development of the city as the City for Champions and the Olympics is only adding to the reasons we will continue to reside in downtown Colorado Springs.
Field trips are booking up for 2017!
We are able to provide tailored field trips for your classes. What does this mean? Come see our exhibits, and even our live animals. While at the center, classes will also participate in programs designed to enhance ANY theme currently being taught in school. That is the tailored experience at Expanding Minds Unlimited!
Need a private tour before booking? Give us a CALL or EMAIL using our contact form. We would be happy to show you out facility at a time that is right for you - EVEN OVER THE CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS HOLIDAYS! - even weekends. Speak with Terrie Wieland or Daniel Riedel about your needs and how we can help provide a mind-blowing experience for your kids.
- Pricing? Most groups average $5/student, with some wiggle room based on financial need. Occasionally for more expansive programs rates can be $6/student, but all prices are subject to individual discussion and need. With new grants in process, we hope to scholarship-in more students this coming spring!
Class sizes? We are able to accommodate classes as large as 100+ students. Many field trips combine classes and it is important to maximize the use of busses to get the most out of a field trip. We are able to divide groups up between different projects at the center, and expand your experience based on your needs.
Some of our NEWEST Offerings
Hydroponics is a hot topic these days. Expanding Minds Unlimited in Colorado Springs has purchased and is growing and sharing produce year round. As an excellent teaching tool, hydroponics, along with other trends in earth-saving and sustainable innovations, are being introduced more and more into classrooms and mainstream life.
Expanding Minds Unlimited has been in the media! We are vested in helping our community through charitable work and giving back. Many of our kids help create holiday cards that go into food and clothing packets given to the homeless in our community. Monthly we go to the many parks in our city and hand out gloves, hats, socks, and food items, and the people really enjoy and appreciate the cards that the local children work so hard to create for them.
Spring Break and Summer CAMPS are also coming up! Let your kids know.
Materials and calendars will be available mid-January 2017!
