Did you know that everything we do at the Zoo to care for our animals involves science? Uncover the secret science animal care professionals use every day as they care for our 4,000 wild residents!
Spark your student’s interest in science as you explore real world animal care challenges in this special discovery day at Denver Zoo. Secret Science Day maps lead students throughout the Zoo to gain an insider view into ways that keepers, veterinarians, nutritionists, trainers and exhibit designers meet the challenges of caring for our wild family.
Zoo staff and volunteers will help your students uncover the inside workings of Denver Zoo, encourage them to make observations at exhibits, discuss ideas with their peers, and share what they’ve learned. The more they engage, the more they discover – including tips on where to see exciting shows and demonstrations, interact with keepers and vets, and meet live animals up close!
Compliance with the chaperone policy is required to remain eligible for the discounted school group rates.
