Explore & Imagine

Explore & Imagine guided field trips are free, one-hour learning opportunities sponsored by AEP Foundation on behalf of the Public Service Company of Oklahoma and led by the Gathering Place Education team.  With curriculum developed in alignment with learning objectives from the Oklahoma Academic Standards, these educational experiences are unique to Gathering Place and additive to student development in the classroom. Through the Explore & Imagine field trip programming, students will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of experiences including grade-level specific curriculum, STEAM, Literacy, and Fine Arts programming, creative play, world-class performances, and hands-on activities.

Space is limited, and classes must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Explore & Imagine guided field trips are available to a maximum of 30 students per session, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. To request a guided field trip, please complete the form below and a Gathering Place education team member will confirm and schedule based on availability.
