Education - School Programs
There are never enough hours in a day when you’ve got a classroom full of curious young minds.
In the Discovery Lab, our curriculum-linked school programs help you achieve your science outcomes, while giving students a chance to practice reading, writing and math. Plus, at Manuels River there’s always an opportunity to get outdoors for some fresh air and exercise. It’s a day they won’t soon forget!
From outdoor activities to fascinating science experiments, our curriculum-linked programming is a great way to get students thinking outside the box, learning and having fun. We have on site school programs developed for students at all grade levels for school groups that can travel to Manuels River. Please see below for our list of full-day (5 hour) and half-day (2.5 hour) programs.
For groups that cannot visit Manuels River, we also offer our Grade 2 Weather program and our Grade 3 Soils program virtually. A 2-hour virtual program costs $60 per class. We can facilitate an interactive workshop using Zoom or Google Meet for schools across Newfoundland and Labrador.
We can also bring our school program to you! We can facilitate physically distant workshops using your school’s outdoor space and can travel within the Avalon Peninsula. A 2-hour school yard visit costs $7 per student and we can adapt any of our full-day programs (below).
Programs are offered Tuesday through Friday, from the start of the school year in September to June.
