This info will help us plan times for when your classes will have labs. Note that middle school sessions are 60 minutes long for bus visits, and 90 minutes for educator visits, and must have 15 minutes minutes between sessions for re-set.

i.e. Holidays, Teacher Workdays, Testing, Half-days, etc.

Please include School Name, Teacher Name, and Phone number for each school you are partnering with.

Morehead offers multiple opportunities for scholarships to cover some or all of the cost of our Outreach programs. Different scholarships have different eligibility requirements, such as free/reduced lunch percentage, title 1 funding, or which county the school is in. Please learn more about our scholarships here: (link opens in new tab)

Schools with 76% reduced lunch or more are eligible for our Jupiter Ball scholarship as funds permit. Schools must be listed on NC DPI website or documentation must be provided by school's Principal.

Educators will attempt to book to your semester's preference, pending the program's travel schedule and availability. You can request up to 1 visit per semester, per school year.

Bus Visits include our fully-equipped 40-foot customized bus, with labs sessions led by Morehead educators for up to three, 60 minute sessions.
Cost: $350 (1-day visit), $275/ea. consecutive day.

Educator visits do not include the bus and are 90 minutes instead of 60; our Morehead educator leads lab activities in your classroom with our equipment. A school staff member’s presence is still required for safety and liability reasons, and to assist with classroom management.
Cost: $200 (1-day visit), $150/ea. consecutive day.

Be specific - our driver will use this information to park in the appropriate space so that the bus won't need to be moved after arriving and setting up for classes. If you don't have this info yet, you can leave it blank, but we will need this information prior to your visit.

Our Mobile Labs Educators offer the following Curriculum Modules for Middle Schools.

Code Red (Simulated Blood Typing)
Genes in a Bottle (DNA Extraction)
So Fresh, So Clean (Water Treatment)
What's Snot To Like? (ELISA Test)

Learn more about each Curriculum Module online at the link provided (opens in new tab).

Use this information to specify which modules you would like for each of your classes in questions below. Please note that due to the difficulty in switching between modules quickly, we usually cannot accommodate scheduling different modules on the same day.

Please note that the Mobile Labs program can only accommodate 24 students per session. Sessions are 60 minutes long for bus visits and 90 minutes for educator visits, with a minimum of 15 minutes between, and up to 3 total sessions/day. Schools requesting more than 3 sessions, or more than one module for their visit, will require multi-day visits.
