Project KITE (Kids in the Environment) is a multi-disciplinary program for grades K-8. It was developed to support the schools’ curriculum using hands-on activities and demonstrations. Working closely with the classroom teacher, Tin Mountain teacher/naturalists provide three presentations and a day-long field trip focused on a topic within the natural sciences.
All topics can be adapted to the applicable grade level and aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards.
