Summer Science Programs
Audubon’s one-hour science investigations are interactive, hands-on programs featuring life science topics. These programs may correlate with themes that students study in science class, but the activities are modified to engage 20 to 30 students in a summer setting. Many of these programs include a live animal presentation.
- Fee: $150 per one-hour program.
- Weekdays only, between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm.
- For summer settings serving a range of ages, we recommend offering separate programs to ensure developmentally age-appropriate activities: 5–7 years, 8–10 years, 11–13 years.
Seven WILD Themes:
- Who's Eating Who?
- How Animals Grow Up
- Animal Senses
- Bird Basics
- Nighttime Hunters
- Sharks and Whales
- Outdoor Exploration: Birds, Insects, Pollinators, or Plants & Trees – Choose a theme and get outside at your site!
