Field trips are TEKS-aligned and FREE to any K – 12th grade school in our 12-county program area. During the field trip, a number of stations will be run by our educators and volunteers, and students will rotate through these stations. We use the 5 senses, a sense of discovery, as well as the scientific method to teach about cycles, systems, organisms, rocks, conservation, plants, and the environment. We discuss how these items change over time and we use equipment to collect and record data.
We host all outdoor field trips that are weather dependent. The optimal daily field trip size is 60 students and we require a 1:10 adult to student ratio.
