The cost including the IMAX movie is $16..45 per student. This is a group rate requiring 15 students and 2 chaperones. Our chaperone is free. I have been asked to make a deposit by the 31st of December, which I am happy to do, if it looks like we'll have 15 students. Without at least 15 students, we must pay full price for the exhibit and the film. Please email if interested, so I can lock in the group rate; otherwise, we can still meet-up on the 13th for full price. Thank you so much!
