Teachers, during your next zoo visit, your students can become our newest class of recruits! Enroll your young scientists in this immersive experience where they will earn their “spots and stripes” by completing in-zoo challenges.
In Animal Academy programs, concepts such as adaptations, ecosystems and life cycles come alive as recruits utilize the Zoo’s animal ambassadors to investigate these science topics. Your scientists-in-training will receive a special mission and explore the Zoo alongside their Academy instructor, applying critical thinking and science skills while working toward their spots and stripes badge.
Three Animal Academy program options are available. Each class is 75 minutes and can accommodate a maximum of 35 students and a minimum of 15 students.
Compliance with the chaperone policy is required to remain eligible for the discounted school group rates.
Any education program(s) that need to be changed after being scheduled are subject to the following fees:
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel or reschedule a program at least two weeks prior to your scheduled visit. We cannot guarantee rescheduling will be possible.
