“You included so many challenges throughout the lesson. The experiments were great! The children liked the scientific vocabulary, following the ‘experiment frame’, and learning more about our topic of study. You all have always been so wonderful, but developing a lesson for us was going above and beyond. We appreciate it!”
“Thank you so much for an outstanding day yesterday. Our class had such a great time. The habitat investigation and discovery rooms were wonderful. We all agreed it was our favorite trip this year! Your guides worked well with the students and got them excited about nature.” ~ Jill Bryant, Bay Area Christian School
