CEED’s Innovative Socially-Distanced Outdoor Education for 2020!
For Whom? For students who need something more than online education. For students who need to move! For students who learn by doing. For homeschoolers. For students who struggle with math and science. For students who love math and science. For students who are at their best outdoors! Class size limited to 15 students, with two teachers.
What? Inquiry-based science and nature classes that start with what students know and build on their questions and interests. Think like a scientist. Each five-week session is aligned with foundations required for your child to learn science, English, language arts, mathematics, and sometimes social studies. Our first session is all about water!

Where? Nature of Science is almost entirely outdoors, and will follow New York State and local board of health COVID-19 protocols. Sometimes we’ll be in a field, or in a forest, or at a stream, or at the Great South Bay. Indoor sessions will be at the Post Morrow Foundation’s Annex, 16 Bay Road, Brookhaven Hamlet off Beaver Dam Road.
By Whom? CEED’s mission is to inspire connection to the joys of nature through education and experience. Our Nature of Science series will be taught by two experienced teachers who are passionate about outdoor education, science, and biology.
How Much? Nature of Science is $250 per child per five-week sessions. There is a family discount for each additional child enrolled in the same session.
