Join 3rd grade students as they navigate the natural wonders of the Inspiring Kids Preserve. Students visit the preserve to gain a connection with the local landscape and participate in hands-on lessons in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
2019 is the first year of this program. We are looking forward to facilitating exciting and memorable experiences for students! This year, students will explore the diverse habitats present at the Inspiring Kids Preserve and learn about local conservation efforts and environmental restoration. The lessons are designed to supplement classroom learning and are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.
Be a part of our dedicated team of community volunteers! Volunteering with this program involves attending this 5-hour classroom/field training and we ask that our volunteers sign up for at least one field trip. This training will serve as an introduction to the program, a tour of the field trip site, and practice with the field trip activities. Field trips are 5-hour commitment. On field trips, volunteers facilitate science lessons and encourage curiosity to a small groups of students.
