Want to get in on the secret? Join us for STEM Goes Wild! at the Zoo! Your class will be given a modified Zoo map so they can track down stations and mini programs throughout the Zoo. These activities may take the form of science experiments, data collection, hands-on activities, animal observations and more! Each class will also receive a timed ticket for a private animal meet and greet.
