Minnesota Zoo Math and Science Program

August 7 - 10, 2017


Minnesota Zoo Math and Science (ZOOMS) Program, Apple Valley

In ZOOMS, students and teachers discover what it takes to engineer a modern zoo. Through topics such as Engineering FOR Animals (exhibit design), Engineering FROM Animals (biomimicry), and Engineering BY Animals (animals as engineers), teachers and students are challenged to consider and tackle the complexities in both the natural world and constructed environments. The ZOOMS program supports teachers with integrating standards-based ZOOMS resources, design challenges, and field trips into their curriculum to better equip students with the STEM skills to engineer and problem solve just like zookeepers, exhibit designers and conservationists at the Minnesota Zoo!  More information at this site.
