Aramco iExplore Biodiversity is a program that utilizes Museum resources, including the Cockrell Butterfly Center, the Brown Hall of Entomology, the Frensley/Graham Hall of African Wildlife, the Farish Hall of Texas Wildlife, the Hamman Hall of Texas Coastal Ecology and the Morian Hall of Paleontology, to educate fifth grade students about biodiversity and related TEKS objectives.

The student experience includes:

  • A Docented tour of the Cockrell Butterfly Center and the Brown Hall of Entomology
  • A Rainforest Wildlife live-animal presentation
  • A self-guided tour of the Frensley/Graham Hall of African Wildlife, the Farish Hall of Texas Wildlife, the Hamman Hall of Texas Coastal Ecology and the Morian Hall of Paleontology

This program is for 5th grade students of Galena Park ISD only. If you are not from Galena Park ISD and would like to book this program, please email educationquestions@hmns.org.


The previous Aramco iExplore program was all about energy. Below are curriculum videos covering the topics of plate tectonics, geology careers and forms of energy.

All costs of this program are generously underwritten by Aramco. This program meets TEKS requirements.
