ZooMobile and Close Encounters
For many Bay Area students, meeting a tortoise, snake, or chinchilla in their classroom can be the highlight of their school year! ZooMobile offers an up-close, hands-on experience with animals in the classroom. These programs, designed to complement your science curriculum, draw students into the wonders of nature while educating them about the animals who share their world. For those who prefer to come to the Zoo, Close Encounters offer the same lessons in our Zoo classrooms.
ZooMobile runs from September through mid-June each year. Each lesson can accommodate up to 35 students, and up to four presentations can be offered on a single day. All ZooMobile curriculum has recently been updated to align with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
