NCMNS Greenville and Contentnea Creek provide astronomy education, environmental education, and outdoor recreation to the children, adults and families of eastern North Carolina. Our field trip programs offer students a chance to move through the trails in the forest or travel through the planets of the solar system in the planetarium.  

Our highly trained educators deliver hands-on learning experiences that reinforce and bring to life the concepts that are taught in the classroom. Each field trip is correlated to the NC Essential Standards and to the Next Generation Science Standards according to grade level.


Student programs at NCMNS Greenville and Contentnea Creek are offered to rising Kindergarten–12th grade students. These programs are available throughout the school year and summer.


The Museum will come to you with programs that connect participants with science and the natural world. Museum educators will bring a variety of materials to provide an interactive, educational experience for your classroom or event. 


Bring your curiosity and sense of wonder as you join museum educators for fun activities, games, and crafts! We offer half-day and full-day, week-long camps ranging in topics from Astronomy to Zoologoy — so there’s something for everyone!
