Science And Nature Explorers Series: Survival And Shelter Building

Friday, January 24, 2020

Wear your thinking cap to class as this week’s activities will involve using your thinking skills to solve survival scenarios– with a focus on hypothermia. During the 2-hour session, students will do a simple heat loss experiment and try their hand at building shelters in the woods. The environmentally-themed six-week series is aimed at homeschoolers, ages 6 to 11, and incorporates model making, science experiments, art, ecology, journaling, and nature study. Each session will involve indoor/outdoor learning and investigation, weather permitting, so please dress appropriately. In the case of severe inclement weather, the class will be rescheduled to the following Friday morning. Participants must register for the full 6-week series and be Rancocas Nature Center family members. Minimum class size is 10 students. Cost: $75 for the 6-week series. Register online. Series continues February 7, 21, March 13, 27 and April 10. For membership information, visit
