outreach lessons

Want to make learning come alive in your classroom?

We've been there! Our knowledgeable team of certified teachers are ready to deliver standards-aligned, hands-on learning experiences that support your curriculum.

During our one-hour lessons, students will engage with content in a variety of ways. As they rotate through stations, knowledge and concepts will be cemented.
