The Abby Sobrato Science and Sustainability Center is a one-of-a-kind facility in Santa Clara County. Science programs accommodate groups of up to 90 students during one-day field trips that involve students in a unique blend of activities. Students rotate through three investigative stations where they explore the outdoors and participate in a hands-on inquiry-based science lesson and a sustainability-related lesson. These activities complement teachers’ classroom lessons and are aligned to State and National Science Standards and Common Core. Lessons are lead by the Science and Sustainability Center Coordinator, center-provided volunteers, and school-provided parents who guide students through each experience. Programs are available for grade levels K-8 and more are being developed.
