Outdoor-based science and biology programming.

Are you looking for science and nature classes that will provide hands-on experiences to help your child succeed this school year? CEED is launching an innovative program for your child called the Nature of Science, where your child will be immersed in a unique inquiry-based learning environment. Each five-week session will be aligned with the foundations required for your child to learn science, English, language arts, mathematics, and sometimes social studies.  Developed and taught by experienced educators, with curriculum developed under the guidance of scientists and experts in the field of education, Nature of Science will provide your child with an exceptional educational experience. 

Think like a scientist.

Your child will learn through authentic scientific projects and activities with our educators, who will take your child on an interactive journey to explore and discover….

  • the natural world up close
  • how animals, plants, and humans interact within different ecosystems
  • life cycles and life’s processes
  • different ways to appreciate and conserve our precious resources and thriving ecosystems, and more!

With the opportunity to think like a scientist, investigate and appreciate nature, learn what it takes to be a good steward for the environment and give back to nature through conservation projects, your child will be better prepared to understand our fragile planet.


Spring Into Science

From bud bursts to seed travel, your child will observe and measure Spring like a scientist. Can you observe and measure “Spring?” The answer is yes. In this inquiry-based session, we will discover and learn about animal migratory patterns (what if the monarch butterfly arrives before milkweed flowers?), watch Spring come alive at the Pond, Salt Marsh, and Seashore, and discover that life comes full circle as we plant seeds using the compost we started last Fall. Happy Spring!

Grades 1-6 takes place on Mondays from 3:30-5:30. Register now, spaces are limited to 15. If we fill this section fills, we may open a second section and will give enrolled students the first option of section.

**Session 5 begins on April 26, 2021
