The school program offers hands-on science activities in the center's exhibits and natural spaces. All activities are conducted in a creative, dynamic way and reinforce concepts taught in the classroom and aligned with the Panamanian educational curriculum.

We offer two schedules or shifts (one at 8:30am and the other one at 10:30am) for a maximum of 100 students per shift to be led by experienced guides. The program is aimed only at schools and educational centers. The 90 minute field trip consists of 45 minutes of educational activity, 30 minutes of a tour of the center, and 15 minutes of snack time at the center. Please arrive on time or we may not be able to serve your group.
