These programs provide a hands-on opportunity for students to develop an awareness and appreciation of the sciences through the exploration of the animal kingdom. In addition, the program fosters a commitment to the protection and understanding of the environment and community. 

Middle School

 

In 2017-2018, the Middle School Traveling Scientist programs will support various grades depending on which Next Generation Science Standards model your district has decided to use (Integrated or Discipline Specific).

 

Integrated Model - Rainforest and Birds of Prey support both 6th and 7th grade

 

Discipline Specific - Rainforest and Birds of Prey will support 7th grade Life Science Course

 

Rainforest

Students journey through the tropical rainforest to learn about indigenous plants and animals and their importance to humans. During interactive lab station, the students will have the opportunity to see and touch live animals and learn about tribes living in the rainforest.

 

 
Birds of Prey
Hawks, owls, and other raptors are brought into the classroom to teach students about the roles these predators play in the balance of nature. Students visit lab stations which include experiencing hawk vision and discovering the diet of an owl through an owl pellet dissection.

 

 

All Grades
Amazing Animals
Live animals are presented to you and your students by our trained Traveling Scientist. Learn about the unique characteristics and behaviors of mammals, reptiles, birds, and other species of the animal kingdom.
 
Rethink Resources 
Is all of our trash really waste? Rethink Resources uses trash to explore the connection between humans and the natural world. Through hands-on activities that focus on the five R's: Reduce, Reuse, Rot, Repurpose, and Recycle, students will develop a deeper understanding of the importance of natural resources and how we can conserve them by producing less waste.
