SYS Out of School Program

Our 30-week Schoolyard Science Program (SYS) provides a hands-on multidisciplinary curriculum to community youth. Children engage in interactive activities during a two-hour class offered once a week, on Wednesday afternoons or Saturday afternoons, at the Deering Estate. The program helps children understand the world around them, all while exploring nature. Space is limited to 30 participants.

Modules include: Natural Sciences, South Florida Ecosystems, Marine Biology, Geology, Archaeology & Ecology.

The cost is $35 per module (five-weeks). Classes start on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm or Saturday, September 4, 2010 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.
