Penguineering Program



Students learn about habitats and how animals impact their habitat using Magellanic Penguins as the model. Students become the penguin as they create a nesting habitat and test it against certain environmental constraints. This program is approximately 45 minutes long and designed for no more than 25-30 students/class. If your class numbers are high we recommend splitting into two smaller groups. Siblings are not allowed in this program.

The cost is $110 for the first program, $75 for each consecutive program and $1 per mile travel fee. Consecutive programs further than 20 minutes apart will incur an additional fee.  Program fees are valid through December 31, 2023.
