We’ll come to you for a STEAM Career Fair for elementary-age students. We provide twenty STEAM stations each with enough supplies for two to four students to stay engaged at the same time; Zoo Education staff to orient teachers and volunteers one hour before the program and assist with the event for up to two hours; an optional Careers Program at the end of the event that allows you to gather everyone to a central location. You’ll provide one volunteer or teacher per station and space to run each station. A commons area may be used but we recommend spreading stations throughout the school. The program fee of $250 includes one hour of set up and two hours of discovery.
Appropriate for ages: Kindergarten, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5
With a minimum of two weeks notice.
