Tree Frog Treks is a hands on science enrichment program for students in K-5th grade that engages kids through science experiments, art projects, games and interactions with our live animal ambassadors (reptiles, amphibians and insects). Spring 2015 Course Description: Bay Area Science! Get ready to dive into Bay Area science! Meet local animals like Checkers the California King Snake, Speedy the Gopher Snake, Bully the Bull Frog, and Mamma Mia the Red-eared Slider Turtle face-to-face! Learn about who lives in the Bay, what makes our earth quake and shake, San Francisco architectural icons, and how to conserve and restore our unique home. In this hands-on science and art program we will build a Golden Gate suspension bridge model, learn about the physics of cable cars, study Elephant Seals and Grey Whales, investigate the East Bay Hills firestorm, pan for gold, find out what happened to the San Francisco Garter Snake, and get to know all about the natural history of your own back yard! There will be no breaks in this session.
