North Carolina elementary schools that are designated as Title I are invited to apply to bring their 5th grade classes to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh to tour The Secret World Inside You, a featured exhibition coming to the Museum in the fall of 2016. This opportunity is being made possible through Google’s Field Trip Days program, which will fund field trips for up to 30 North Carolina 5th grade classes.
