Welcome to SciTrek
SciTrek is dedicated to allowing 2nd - 12th grade students to experience the scientific process first hand. SciTrek seeks to partner with local schools to present inquiry based modules that not only emphasize the process of science but also specific grade level standards.
Each module allows students to design and carry out an experiment. Providing students with the opportunity to not only learn scientific facts but also experience the scientific method allows students to understand how scientists use evidence based explanations to explain the world around them.
In addition to providing programming for students, SciTrek strives to demonstrate the importance of inquiry based lesson in science curriculum to teachers, practicing teachers, and teachers in training.
Thank you for sharing the update on the SciTrek program and all of the exciting activities that took place during the 2016-17 school year. I was impressed to read that the program reached nearly 1,700 elementary and middle school students this past year, as well as 37 teachers. Thank you for your continued dedication to science education and instruction – you are nurturing our next generation of scientists!

I like the idea of giving the students the freedom to design, experiment, fail, and try again!

It's amazing to see the transformation that the students make in such a short amount of time. Their ideas and understanding of concepts grow each time we meet. I always feel inspired coming out of the classrooms after seeing how excited the students are, and how big of a positive impact we are having on them.
