Watershed Walkabout: Young Ecologists
Our outreach program is an interactive, inquiry-based opportunity with grade-appropriate STEAM lessons, taught exclusively to preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students. These lessons are all correlated to the Next Generation Science Standards, NC Essential Standards, and Ocean and Climate Literacy Standards. Check out how we meet the standards HERE.
Here's how it works:
Choose a lesson, contact our Director of Education to schedule a day that's suitable for you and the other teachers in your grade, and we'll bring the science to you! We don't need an auditorium or a gymnasium because our presentation style requires us to be in your classroom with your students. Each is hands-on, so students get the most out of the 1/2 hour lessons.
Cost is $65 for one class (base price) and just $30 each additional class. We use this flat rate so it's cheaper for your students. For example: 4 classes = $155 (plus tax). For 100 students total, that would be less than $2/student! We can only accept check or money order at this time. Registration must be made at least one week in advance and cancellations must be made within 24 hours of the scheduled date. (PRICES SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND WILL INCLUDE TRAVEL)
Our COVID-19 and CDC Updates:
We have altered our lessons to the best of our ability. Because our lessons are hands-on and interactive, students will be working together in small groups with shared materials. Please go HERE to view our updates for each individual lesson we offer.
