Allow us to give your students a memorable, hands-on experience! Choose from the following exciting science safaris.

 
Culture
Powwow
American Indian Pow Wow Grades Pre-K2-Pre-K4 (45min-1 hour), K-5 (1½ hours)
An Experience with Native American culture! A unique opportunity for students to learn Native American custom, dance and song by actually doing them in their own classroom! We turn your students into stomping braves and "light as a feather" maidens! Feathers fly everywhere as the young Indians dance authentic Native American dances within the ceremonial circle. What better way to learn about the "First Americans" than to join in an authentic, simulated pow-wow. We will provide all they need to "look the part". When we gather at the outdoor site, young braves will be prepared to take part in the Grass or the Deer Dance, while the maidens will be prepared for the Fancy Shawl or Basket Dance. Original Native American chants and stories will be sung and shared long after we are gone. So prepare your tepee, practice your dance steps and rattle our phone with your request for exciting Indian culture.

Endangered Ecosystems Grades 4-5, 6-9 (1½ hours)

A unique opportunity for students to observe, classify and analyze endangered ecosystems like the wetlands, beaches, forests and deserts – all which are found here in the US! Students become "Wildlife  Managers“ who search for food chains within complex food webs, test natural waters for sources of pollution and contamination, reconstruct a fragmented ecosystem and make decisions which may affect life on earth.

Students explore four endangered ecosystems as wildlife managers. They are encouraged to make decisions based on the conclusions drawn from their research.

Forests

Students will act as if they are actually on a paleontology excavation. Students transform into Paleontologists in these one-of-a-kind field trips. No where else is such an experience possible (except in actual phosphate mines or fossil beds!).

Animal Encounters
Animal Encounters

Insect Insights Grades K-2 (1½ hours)

An exciting experience with insects! An opportunity for young "entomologists” to understand the importance of insects and the fascinating roles they play in our lives! Associating with arthropods, entomologists will see why there is such a “buzz” about insects. They will understand the importance of these “pests” in our every day lives as well as how bugs have given humans ideas to create many of our day to day products.


Name That Animal Grades Pre-K2 – K (30-45 minutes) NEW PROGRAM!

This 45 minute program will let your biologists explore our animal kingdom as they will come face to face with specimens from the insect, fish, amphibian, reptile, bird, and mammal groups.

Oceans/
Beaches

Our theme of marine preservation and wise management will encourage all to keep a keen eye on the future of this salty scene!

Students will relate to the ocean & beach as more than a playground, large swimming pool or a place to catch some rays. First-hand experience with the "elements" which make up the ocean and end up on the beach will open eyes to the real treasures that abound along the coast of Florida.
