Elementary & Middle School Workshops
Our STEAM based in-school field trips bring the power of the natural world into your classroom through hands-on, standards-based learning experiences! Each program is aligned to the GSE for science, and includes pre- and post-instructional materials to integrate our programs into your curriculum
In-School Field Trips
Ecosystem Energy Flows!
In this high-energy game students become the inhabitants of an ecosystem, where they investigate how energy flows while making decisions about what to eat and how not to get eaten!

Staying Wet in the Desert
In this engineering activity, students discover the world of adaptations by constructing a creature that is able to survive and stay moist in a hot, dry desert!

SB3 SB5 SB6 SEC2 SEC3 SEV1 SZ2 SZ4
Talking Without Words
In this group investigation, students discover the mechanics of light and sound waves by modeling communication techniques found in the animal kingdom!
S1P1, S4P1, S4P2, S8P4
Where Do I Belong?
In this classroom game, students investigate Georgia’s five geographic regions and predict the traits of the organisms that thrive there.
S3L1, S7L1, S7L4, SEV1
Origins of Electricity
In this engineering activity, students discover where their electricity comes from by constructing a model device to convert kinetic or potential energy into electrical energy.

Water Gets Hotter!
In this natural selection game students play the role of corals on a reef, using their individual traits to determine who will survive the warming oceans and what traits the next generation of reefs may have.
S3L1, S4L1, S5L2, S7L2, S7L3, S7L4, S7L5, SB3, SB5, SB6
In this fast-paced game students take on the role of pollinators and plants, competing to survive and modeling the complex interactions between organisms in an ecosystem.
S2L1, S7L4, SB5, SEV4
In this group investigation students manipulate how water flows across a landscape by constructing a functional, three-dimensional watershed that spans 400 square feet.
S1E1, S2E3, S3E1, S3L2, S4E3, S5E1, S6E3, S6E5, SEV4
In this turn-based competition, teams of students play the role of diverse ecosystems and mono-cultures to investigate how biodiversity affects survival in a changing environment.
S3L2, S4L1, S7L1, S7L3, S7L4, S7L5, SB5, SEV2, SEV5
Trash Bag Dissection
In this group investigation students reflect on the types of waste we produce by dissecting a household trash bag and categorizing its contents.
