Explore the center at your own pace. A limited number of backpacks, complete with field guides, hand lenses, and other scientific tools to help you explore, are available for check-out at the front desk. These backpacks are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, or may be reserved in advance.
Additionally, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our newest program offered as part of a self-guided field trip in partnership with TalkSTEM – WalkSTEM at TRAC! Although we often don’t realize it, math is all around us. This year-round self-guided experience is designed to engage students with the math found in nature through a series of stops along our trails. At each stop, students will be asked to think critically about a math topic and how they see it played out in nature. Most of the stops include step-by-step math problems for the students to complete.
