Did you know that the biosphere, hydrosphere, geosphere, and atmosphere are all interconnected? Are you curious about the rare species that are being protected in the Twin Cities? Do you wonder about how water flows through our watershed, or what green engineering projects are happening nearby? Join us as we go on nature hikes and a field trip to a unique ecology site, learn from local scientific research and conduct our own experiments, and work through engineering design challenges. By playing with sustainability innovations and meeting green leaders in stories, students will explore their own leadership skills. From air up there to weather down here, stories in the rocks to sand in your socks, the diversity of trees to the health of all bees, join us as we investigate parts working together in systems tiny and grand.
Outdoor Adventures in Engineering And Leadership
For Rising 6th – 8th Grade Students
Your Summer of Discovery Awaits
MITY’s ExplorSchool provides rising 6th-8th grade students a unique opportunity to investigate new topics and dive deeper into their passions at a level that is challenging and motivating. Intellectually curious students take two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, enabling them to explore different disciplines, experience things that are not possible within a normal school setting, and forge new friendships.
