EXTRA CREDIT

 

There are two Types of Extra Credit

 

 

   Visiting a Science Museum (maximum credit 2% for each science museum)

 

     You may obtain extra credit by going to one of the following science museums. You may select only one museum in each of the groups (local, regional, and national). The primary purpose for visiting a science museum is to experience science and technology outside the classroom and to experience societies support for science.  To obtain credit for this experience you must first go to the institute and complete the Science Institute Survey Form and secondly you must attach proof of attendance by attaching a ticket stub or a receipt to this form.
