We offer a diverse variety of science field classes – on the UA Campus at the Bryant Bannister Tree Ring Building, at Tumamoc Hill, and at field sites in the Catalina Mountains - where students learn that science is a dynamic process of gathering and evaluating information. This outreach program is innovative in that schoolchildren become the scientists, not just learn about scientific concepts. We want to make science accessible and relevant to the general public.
Your students will learn about tree rings, the science of dendrochronology. They will have the opportunity to practice math and graphing skills using cross-dating techniques,observe the effects of water (rainfall) on growth cycles, or learn how history affects life and health today.
We also offer portable classroom visits if you are unable to visit the UA Campus, with hands-on demonstrations designed age-appropriate for all groups.
