Our new suite of 60-minute, educator-guided programs held here in our Gardens. Programs are available for up to 60 students Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 10:30 am or 12:00 pm. Fall programming is available September–November and spring programming March–June.
Rooted firmly in Next Generation Science Standards and/or Common Core State Standards, our cross-curricular programs encourage students to use their prior knowledge and experiences to encourage creativity and flexible thinking. Choose a lesson theme for your grade level and watch students apply what they know to solve real-world challenges around the Gardens. Home school and cyber school groups are welcome to participate in our educator-guided or self-guided programs. Our educator-guided school group programs are held rain or shine.
