    Program Description

    Back by popular demand-we have new additions to our ‘Power Stations’ to enhance student’s scholastic instruction, along with extended engagement time exploring them! Your students examine live plants and animals (touching-if they choose), as they differentiate amongst varying habitats and give their best shot at sketching and labeling them. Register your group today and see first hand-what the adventure is all about!
