Title I Policies

If your school is designated as Title I (meaning that 40 percent or more of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch), admission is free and we have subsidies available to help with other costs. See below for options or call our Group Reservations specialists at 408-294-8324, option 3.


Museum entry

All schools that are designated Title I will receive free entry for all students and chaperones. Entry includes all gallery experiences and floor programs.


The Tech Science Labs

Title I schools may qualify for a scholarship for a Tech Science Lab, which covers the entire cost of the lab experience. To qualify for a Title I lab scholarship, each teacher must implement the provided pre- and post-lab activities with his or her class and respond to a follow-up survey from The Tech. To download pre- and post-lab activities, click here: https://www.thetech.org/educators/tech-science-labs


Labs require a $50 deposit per lab, regardless of Title I status. For Title I schools receiving a lab scholarship, the deposit will be refunded at the time of field trip check-in. If you cancel your lab less than three weeks from the scheduled lab date, your deposit will not be refunded. Funding is limited — book early!


IMAX

Title I schools are eligible for reduced pricing for educational IMAX films. The Title I price for IMAX educational films is $3 per student.


Transportation

Funding may be available to help pay for bus transportation to The Tech for Title I schools. Funding for transportation is very limited and may only be available for certain counties; please inquire at time of reservation.
