One World Conservation Center’s programs connect students to their local environment with thought-provoking and engaging hands-on activities. Classes are designed to meet the requirements of the Next Generation Science Standards, and curricula can be adapted to fit your needs.
Programs may be configured in different ways. As indicated in the descriptions below, lessons may take place at your school or facility (one hour), at the OWCC Reserve as an outdoor field trip (two hours), or as a classroom and field trip combination (one-hour classroom visit, plus a two-hour field trip on a different day).
The cost for a one-hour classroom lesson is $45, with the exception of the “I Like to Move It, Move It” and the “Engineering Design Challenge” lessons which are two hours long and $75. Field trips cost $60. The classroom lesson and field trip combination is $100 Program fees are subsidized with the generous support of private donors and local businesses.
A target grade is listed next to each program. The target grade’s NGSS performance expectations are most closely correlated to the program’s outcomes, though most programs may be adapted to other grade levels. Don’t see a particular topic? Ask us about customizing a program for your group!
