Wild Science Academy at the Phoenix Zoo.
These classes are great. You, as the parent, do not attend so you can drop your kiddo(s) off or do what I do... I "get my steps in" and walk the zoo for two hours (we have membership otherwise adult has to pay for admission).
Wild Science Academy lets you explore the world of science with the Zoo as your classroom! These affordable and educational two-hour classes teach science through animal interactions, behind-the-scenes experiences, laboratory investigations, group projects, Zoo hikes and other inquiry-based learning activities. Designed for home school students, but open to all, Wild Science Academy is perfect for any young student with a desire to learn more about the science in zoos. Each class is also developed using Arizona Science Standards.
