Using the outdoors as a classroom is a great way to get students excited about science and make connections to the real world!
Since 2001 the Center for Science & Environmental Outreach at Michigan Technological University has offered outdoor learning experiences in science and environmental education for K-12 students in the five western counties of the Upper Peninsula.
Field trip activities enhance classroom learning and are correlated to Michigan Content Standards for Science and Math. During the activities, students utilize many science and math skills such as observing, predicting, data collecting, recording, graphing, analyzing and drawing conclusions.
