Education Workshop at Moody Gardens

Moody Gardens Outreach Programs

All Outreach Programs are multi-sensory, lecture, discussion, and interactive based. Although, program topics are science based, each topic also has interdisciplinary elements including: history, geography, culture, and conservation. The outrach program topic can be tailored to the grade level with the appropriate corresponding TEKS. To "illustrate" the program topics, Bio-facts and artifacts are introduced offering the student additional insight into their program. At the conclusion of this 45-55 minute program, your student will have the opportunity of engagement with both bio-fact and artifact, creating their own "AH-HA" moment!
