AFTER SCHOOL

The After School Program allows students who have enjoyed learning with Thorne’s In-School Program, to opt into a twelve week program, where they spend two hours after school each week exploring nature in and around their school yard. The After School Program enhances what students are learning in the classroom and includes: engaging in the scientific process, place-based (local) education, science note booking, science and environmental career exposure, and stewardship activities.

Our After School Programs emphasize the cultivation of environmental stewardship by developing self-awareness and repeated interactions with nature. Students enjoy multiple placed-based, positive, hands-on experiences in their schoolyard and nearby locations, while they are encouraged to connect to the natural environment and reflect upon the meaning of their experiences.

“The students are so engaged with the hands-on activities and games. I’ve heard them using vocabulary from your lessons.”
