What age does the program cover?

Digital Discovery Adventures are web-based classes for grades 3-12, geared to connect students to the Zoo in a more in-depth and engaging way. Curriculum in each session aligns with both state and national learning standards.

“At this time, we are continuing to provide tangible, enjoyable resources for the community,” said Kate Davis, School Programs Manager. “We know our guests and supporters are missing the animals. These programs digitally fill that void, enabling them to still have a fun and engaging experience with their Zoo.”
