Classroom Workshops

KIDS for the BAY will bring the San Francisco Bay estuary into your classroom! Our program provides hands-on science experiments, animal and plant investigations, and activities that are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. It includes three hours of instruction and a Teacher Activity Package.

“The entire program is well thought out and planned. My students learned a lot!”
