Climate Change and Sustainability Program

Schuylkill Center educators deliver a unique interactive lesson teaching students about the various aspects of climate change. Our goal is to empower future generations to make sustainable choices in their daily lives.

Aquatic Ecology & Water Quality

Students learn about watersheds and the impact of human activity on our waterways, examine stream critters under a microscope, and conduct pollution experiments. Students also do a water quality assessment at a pond or stream.

Ecosystems & Adaptations

This program reinforces the concept that every species has a unique set of characteristics that help it survive. Students learn how the environment influences a species' physical features and behavior through the process of natural selection.

Art & Science

Enhance your students' understanding of the natural world through art. Students interpret natural science learning in their field explorations into an art project they take home.

Incredible Insects (April – November)

Get up close and personal with one of the most diverse groups of creatures on the planet! Students explore our forests, ponds, and fields to learn about the physical features and behaviors of insects.

Seeds to Trees to Soil (March – November)

Trees are vital to our ecosystem, absorbing carbon dioxide, cooling the earth, and providing important animal habitats. Students study the forest ecosystem and the life cycle of trees.

Soil: Digging Deeper (March – November)

Students will get their hands dirty and explore soil and the nutrients that cycle through it and into plants.
