Program Description

At the FRDC, we understand that some educators may not be able to attend or feel comfortable with physical field trips in the post-COVID school year. In response to your concerns, we are developing outreach kits that educators will be able to borrow to extend the learning of classrooms in a safe way. 

To develop these programs, we need your help! Please fill in our educator survey to tell us what you need from an outreach kit, or email us your comments to [email protected].

  • Plants and animals have observable features.
