Blended in-classroom and field trip experience
Want a fantastic way to leverage the powerful impact of outdoor science education into student achievement at your school? Look no further.
Sierra Nevada Journeys' Classrooms Unleashed program is designed by credentialed teachers to be inquiry-driven, hands-on, student centered, and highly engaging. Our programs are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core. Program fees are based on a sliding scale to meet the needs of all schools.
Classrooms Unleashed programs include three in-class lessons taught by Sierra Nevada Journeys instructors, a science exploration field trip outdoors or indoors based on the program led by Sierra Nevada Journeys instructors, and extension lessons for teachers for before and after our program. We also administer pre- and post-assessments for your students. We work with you to meet your classroom’s individual needs, and provide the resources you need to plan our time together.
External evaluation by the University of Nevada's Center for Program Evaluation showed that in 2016, five percent more students at schools that participate in Sierra Nevada Journeys' programming score at the proficient level on the State Science assessment than students at comparison schools.
