School Year Field Trips

Our state-of-the-art facilities allow students to explore genetics concepts and experience activities associated with several biotechnology careers. These hands-on, laboratory-based field trips are tied to course of study objectives, put high-tech biotechnology tools in the hands of your students and engage them in scientific thinking.

The HudsonAlpha Teaching Lab has workspace for a maximum of 32 students per event. Costs are determined by event, not by student. There is no minimum number of participants.

Educators can review our field trip options by downloading the PDF brochure. Once the desired activity has been determined, please click the button below to submit a Field Trip Request Form. Specific questions about field trips, including scheduling and field trip activity combinations, should be addressed to Dasi Price at
