Last year nearly 700 teachers brought their K-12 classes to the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center for field trips. RPSECís K-12 Student Programs served a total of 20,703 students from 74 schools encompassing 21 school districts in 11 counties.
The most popular of our program offerings for 2007-2008 were Animals with Backbones (1373 students), Follow the Drinking Gourd (1284 students), and Circuit City (1153 students). Other favorites included Blown Away, Magnets and Motions, In My Backyard, Ravenous Raptors, and CSI Solutions. The deadline has passed for reservation requests for the 2008-2009 school year. Once again, we have received many more requests than we will be able to serve and we are completely booked for the upcoming year. Teachersí requests received after the June 13 deadline will be added to the waiting list in the event of a cancellation. Please note that we are not able to accept any reservation requests by telephone. We look forward to serving a record number of students again this school year!
