Inside the TSC
The INHS Traveling Science Center, a 320 square foot mobile classroom, features informative panels on Biodiversity, focusing on Illinois. In partnership with Prairie Rivers Network, we have designed new exhibits highlighting the importance of waterways in Illinois.
Students will learn about the types of habitats and species diversity of their region. Other topics include exotic invasive species and stewardship. Activities are available to extend the Traveling Science Center educational experience to the classroom.
The Traveling Science Center is available to visit schools, park districts, and other organizations. For important information regarding visits, please review our policy statement.
