Pricing and Contact Information


Assembly Presentation

For one grade, up to 6 classes.

These presentations are designed to teach an entire grade level at once. They are less hands-on than the in-class presentations, but will teach the same Utah  Core Educational Standards based material.

Cost: $250

In-Class Presentations

Classes must be in the same grade, at the same location, and presentations must be on the same day.

The in-class presentations are very hands-on, and provide the best learning environment for our Utah Core Educational Standards based programming. Our educators will move from classroom to classroom.

Cost: $200 for the first presentation, $100 for each subsequent presentation.


These presentations are designed to teach a single grade level at a time.

Any teachers looking to book a school-wide assembly
