Middle School and High School

(Grades 5-12)


Our mobile classroom comes to you!  The Discovering the Science of the Environment van travels to your school to provide free Earth & Environmental Sciece programs for grades 5-12.  DSE programs are designed for the outdoors, incorporating a school's natural areas when available.  (Most programs can also be held indoors in winter months and inclement weather.)  Programs are aligned with Indiana State Science Standards and Excellence in Environmental Education-Guidelines for Learning.  These programs feature hands-on, scientific investigations and can be tailored to suit individual class needs and the local environment. 

Please refer to program topics below.

DSE programs are typically 60 minutes in length but can be adapted for shorter or longer class sessions.
