Science Safaris Field Expereince

Journey out into the field for an unforgettable hands-on learning experience. The Virginia Living Museum's science safaris give students an exciting combination of in-class laboratory instruction and hands-on topical field study. Developed under a Virginia Environmental Endowment grant as model programs for high school students, the Museum's science safaris are combined laboratory and field classes that stress field study, experimentation, data collection and analysis. After an introduction to the day's topic, students will leave the classroom behind to become immersed in a first-hand learning experience in the natural world.
