As a community, the Railyard Park Conservancy, SITE Santa Fe and Violet Crown are offering Railyard Thursdays – a free field trips for students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
Students spend a Thursday exploring the intersection of art, science and nature at three locations in the Railyard District. The field trip is designed to enhance powers-of-observation with analogy-based thinking and visual learning strategies. Cultivating mental tools that allow students to look closely at the world benefits learning and translates across all disciplines. Railyard Thursdays pique curiosity and incubate wonder! Join us!
