You spoke and we listened… “provide us with exciting, hands-on learning experiences for our high school students”.
We understand that it is sometimes difficult to schedule field trips for your high school students given their busy class schedules. We’ve perfected classes and offer all kinds of delivery options for grades 9 through 12. The classes blend seamlessly with students’ schedules and meet Wisconsin Model Academic Standards for Education.
Looking for a partner to bring the natural sciences to life for your high school students?
Look no further…we are your go-to resource for connecting students with science and nature. Each year, we educate over 27,000 school children from the metropolitan Milwaukee area – many from grades 9 through 12.
Regarding our program, a visiting high school teacher said it best:
“Everything in the program related extremely well to our current curriculum. This experience was incredibly important for my students to develop an appreciation for our environment.”
