We get it.

  • Field trip materials should be ready-to-use. Comprehensive, compelling education resources provide the bridge between the classroom and your exhibition.
  • Our materials are correlated to national and state curriculum standards. Teachers use these standards to gain approval from those who grant permission for field trips at their schools.
  • Our award-winning curriculum inspires teachers and motivates students. We specialize in transforming the field trip from a passive experience to an active, memorable learning opportunity.
  • Satisfied teachers and excited students generate referrals, return visits, and group sales. Our targeted “by teachers for teachers” education resources motivate educators to purchase group tickets.
  • We have over decades of experience speaking to teachers and writing for students. Our clients recognize the value of utilizing classroom-trained teachers who are dedicated full-time to designing relevant materials that are both student- and teacher-friendly. Our survey of over 500 museums and field trip destinations nationwide revealed that many of these institutions cannot dedicate internal resources to customizing education content to better serve their local schools and attract additional ticket-buyers.

We partner with best-in-class exhibitions and field trip destinations worldwide.

We consider it an honor to have worked with TurnKey Education for the past year and a half during the development and launch of the Crayola IDEAworks Exhibition.  The exhibition itself is designed to identify and strengthen creative problem solving skills for kids and families, and TurnKey has been a trusted team member in the development of the educational materials which will be used to enhance and deepen school group experiences. They were meticulous in their research and truly brought passion and excellence to play. We look forward to working with TurnKey again and would highly recommend them to anyone."

Account Director | Dimensional Innovations

"It has been a treat to work with TurnKey Education on the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum so far.  The student focus groups they facilitated across two cities and states provided the Museum and the design team with valuable information and insight for understanding the needs of K-12 visitors, and will greatly help to shape the design and story lines of the final musuem.  In addition, they have mapped the design work to STEM/STEAM standards for both Kansas and Missouri, and have taken a strong lead on the research for the project, uncovering "buried treasure" that even the museum didn't know existed.  TurnKey is our hands-down go-to as a museum education partner."

Kristyn Tumbleson
Director, Education | Georgia Aquarium

"Working with TurnKey Education has been a true pleasure and a worthwhile investment. Cheryl and Cassie have a deep dedication to creating meaningful and robust learning experiences for our students, and their responsiveness and attention to detail is unmatched. As a former teacher, I can say that the materials TurnKey creates are some of the best I have seen and are easy for teachers to pick up and implement. TurnKey has an eye for translating community resources into purposeful learning opportunities, and I would recommend them to any institution looking to amplify its educational impact."

Michael G. Kempf
Vice President, Marketing | Evergreen Exhibitions

"We were very pleased with results in partnering with TurnKey on education resources for Above and Beyond, an interactive flight exhibition.  The work on our teacher's guides was creative, thoughtful and practical.  The ideas in the toolbox were innovative and useful.  TurnKey helped us with everything from planning field trip marketing to developing the curricula connections guide.  Uniquely, Cheryl's and Cassie's backgrounds as teachers provided us with insights that guided the entire process, and their commitment to keeping everything relevant and getting every detail right was inspiring.  We also appreciated their close involvement with our corporate sponsor and underwriter, and with a wide range of other contributors and collaborators.  Great to team up with TurnKey!"

Pamela Braasch
Director of Education Programs and Galleries | Saint Louis Science Center

"The Above and Beyond Education Guide has been an invaluable resource for the teachers and students who have visited the exhibit! Most have commented that they have used the activities in their classroom and will continue to incorporate them into future lesson plans."

John Stephenson
President & CEO, College Football Hall of Fame |Atlanta Hall Management, Inc

"TurnKey Education was incredibly creative and innovative in developing STEAM classroom lesson plans that qualify for curriculum standards in our main drive-time markets.  Even with a soft launch, we are already seeing results two ways: 1. goodwill and reputation enhancement due to the community offering and 2. attendance to the attraction generated solely from the curriculum engagement.  We could not be more pleased with not only the product and results, but with the attitude of true partnership exhibited by the TurnKey Education team.  They are enthusiastic, professional, and reliable...they took time to understand our business and truly work with our best interests in mind.  We look forward to a long relationship with TurnKey, as we are busy finding budget to enhance and expand on the already excellent experience they have created."

Dina Bailey
Director of Educational Strategies, Center for Civil and Human Rights

Before our building was even complete, TurnKey was working from exhibit files and design mock-ups to conceptualize the materials for The Center.  Throughout the process, TurnKey and Center staff collaborated closely on the development of the materials.  With each meeting, email, or call, it was clear that the educators at TurnKey were determined to create resources that would best serve the depth and breadth of our diverse audiences. … Long after their contract was complete, Cheryl and Cassie continue to support education at The Center for Civil and Human Rights.  We have been pleased with the professionalism, diligence, and true partnership that we found through TurnKey Education.” 

Catherine Brown
Marketing Coordinator, MSG Entertainment, Group Sales

Working with TurnKey Education on our study guide for the New York Spring Spectacular™ at Radio City Music Hall® was amazing. Cheryl and her staff were extremely efficient and an absolute delight to work with. The finished product was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for, and has provided immense support for our school markets. Cheryl and her team were able to take the storyline and script of a never-before-seen show and create a fun, educational and high quality teacher guide that incorporated aspects of the show with history, science, technology, mathematics and engineering. I would absolutely recommend TurnKey Education.”

Michael Downs
President & Founder, Downsart, Inc. Experience Design The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll

“WOW. These (Teacher’s Guides) are AMAZING.  This kind of attention to detail, design and multi-layered focus makes me even more proud to be associated with this gig. Unbelievable, breathtaking and unlike anything I have seen at any other Exhibit.”

Judith Geller
Director, The Human Body Exhibition

“Working with Turnkey Education on our Human Body Exhibitions was a delight. Cheryl and Cassie are experienced, creative, and, above it all, met our impossibly tight deadlines for an exhibition catalogue, didactic content, and study guide with professionalism and humor. Every day, wherever we present our exhibition, their expertise enlightens our visitors in an innovative and challenging manner.”

Nathalia Riberio
Director of Operations, The Science of Rock 'N' Roll

“I was very pleased to have Turnkey Education create our Science of Rock 'N' Roll Teacher’s Guides. Besides being a joy to work with, Cheryl Muré (M.Ed., President, TurnKey Education) is reliable, dedicated, extremely knowledgeable and eternally upbeat! Cheryl and her team did more than create comprehensive, mind-blowing education resources for The Science of Rock 'N' Roll; they have become an invaluable asset to our marketing efforts. If you want your exhibition to be a winner, then I highly recommend TurnKey Education!”

Deb Axtell
Owner, Tickets for Groups

“I have worked with TurnKey Education on numerous educational exhibitions geared to school groups.  Cheryl and her team have been true partners who understand how to develop and deliver the instructional guides teachers need for students to get the most out of their field trip experience--before, during and after their visit.  Often, TurnKey materials have been the reason that teachers complete the final group ticket purchase.  They look forward to using the guides and giving students the maximum learning experience for their ticket investment.

Field trip choices for student groups are plentiful. TurnKey’s Teacher’s Guides have been the support materials we need at Tickets for Groups in order to close sales and hit our Group Sales goals.

Cheryl’s experience as a teacher is what sets TurnKey materials apart from other Teacher’s Guides I have distributed.  She understands how to make the educator’s job easier, and deliver the most fascinating experience to students.  Student groups get more out of their field trips when they have prepared for their visit with a TurnKey Guide.”
