FieldSCOPES Day Programs

After months of on-line distance education, the need for hands-on, experiential learning is greater than ever. Mount Rainier Institute (MRI) is now offering FieldSCOPES, a series of day-long field experiences and outreach programs. Our goal is to continue to partner with schools to provide experiences that enhance curriculum, enrich science, and build community. We will work directly with schools to accommodate needs and provide safe and innovative solutions to school re-opening plans.

 

FieldSCOPES programs are design to provide students with a hands-on education experience in a safe outdoor classroom. FieldSCOPES has options for every grade level.

 

FieldSCOPES also includes Outreach programs where Mount Rainier Institute instructors come to your school.

Tuition ranges from $20-30 per student. Mount Rainier Institute, the National Park Service and our partners are committed to providing scholarships to ensure students from all backgrounds have the opportunity to participate. Please call (253) 692-4161 for current rates and scholarship information.
