Serving All Elementary Schools in Western North Carolina and Surrounding Counties.
Our programs are designed to enhance your curriculum & go hand-in-hand with the NC Essential Standards for Science.
During an in-school field trip, students are given the opportunity to use the tools as a working scientist would use such as magnifying glasses, thermometers, graduated cylinders, scales & balances & more. Students are able to use these tools when experimenting to classify, measure, compare & hypothesize their observations. Access to these tools takes students beyond gathering data & helps to extend their senses.
High Touch High Tech of WNC delivers 75-minute in-school science field trips that will transform your classroom into a Living Laboratory! Elementary students in grades K-5th can roll up their sleeves to become REAL scientists performing REAL experiments! With scientists that are highly trained, we can provide high quality classroom instruction and thought-provoking science experiences. We use materials that are concrete, safe and relevant to children's lives. Students can duplicate many of these experiments at home with their parents. Our programs are aligned with the North Carolina Essential Standards for Science (N.C.E.S) and help build a student's confidence for standardized testing.
