DISTANCE LEARNING: SCIENCE IN NATURE

Bring the excitement and learning of our Science in Nature programs to your classroom! These live, virtual programs meet the Next Generation Science Standards and are appropriate for students in Kindergarten to 5th Grade. Topics range from Exploring Weather to Water Cycling.

Also included with some of the sessions are “Program Activity Kits” that complement the virtual portion of the program and are designed to foster additional student learning. Packed with the curriculum and all the materials needed for hands-on activities for each student, these kits can be used in the classroom or at home, and include a virtual 60-minute guided lesson with one of our educators.
