Overview

1-5 day Residential Programs focused on STEM education, environmental science, and team building are available for 4th - 8th grade students at our modern campus in Freedom, NH. 

In Classroom Programs are available for K - 8th grade students throughout New England. Lessons take place in the classroom or schoolyard.  

Our customized STEM and environmental science curriculum aligns with Massachusetts and New Hampshire Science Standards, as well as Next Generation Science Standards. We work with each school to design a program that best fits the needs and outcomes of the group. 

Students collect, interpret, and analyze data then construct arguments from this evidence. Students work collaboratively to build and use models to describe scientific phenomena and solve real world design problems.   

Our curriculum is rooted in:

physical science

Through outstanding, interactive, hands-on lessons, students learn about the structure and properties of matter. They'll have the opportunity to experience chemical properties and reactions, as well as forces of motion and their interactions. There are also classes on energy conservation and energy transfer.

life science

Using different experiential lessons, students explore the structure and processes of organisms, as well as investigate matter and energy transfer in organisms and ecosystems. The natural outdoor laboratory is perfect for studying cause and effect relationships in ecosystems and adaptations and species diversity.

earth and space science

Our student scientists investigate the scale and properties of objects in the solar system, as well as how the earth's history was shaped by geologic processes. They also explore the interconnectivity of earth's spheres, and our human impacts on earth and its resources.

engineering

This fun and hands-on section explores different engineering processes, including solving a design problem within given criteria and constraints. Students will also evaluate the integrity of multiple design solutions, control variables, and analyze the results from different tests.
