We often have more than one class visit from a school at a time to reduce in busing costs and carbon emissions. Due to limited staff and space we are often unable to accommodate more than one class at a time for an activity. While the other class waits for their turn into the station, we can offer a scavenger hunt activity for teachers looking for a more structured activity for their class other than free exploration of the site. Scavenger hunt includes worksheet, clip board and pencil. This is a teacher-guided activity.

Which Program(s)?

Please note that if you plan on visiting for more than one program, you can only combine a Guided Tour with one other choice. This is due to limited staff for set up and take down between programs. Some exceptions may apply, please leave request in comment field below.

When two classes visit at the same time, one can do a program in the classroom while the other group either does the Guided Tour ($100) or a self-guided activity (Outside Exploration)
This lab requires algae be tested to obtain data for lab worksheets. Classes have the option to return to the lab to complete their final sample/data collection, or alternatively, our staff can collect this information and send the data to the teacher over e-mail. Both options will be an additional 30 minutes of time, making this program $150 (1.5 hours of instructor time).
