THE LEARNING LAIR
The Learning Lair is a Science Exploration Museum for all Blue Valley students grades K-8.
The Lair was developed during the 2011-2012 school year by teachers and students within the science department.
The design of the program is based on the district science curriculum for the classes of Field Biology, AP Biology, Honors Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Zoology. The stations within the museum support the K-8 science curriculum within the district. Teachers can enhance their classroom lessons and foster deeper appreciation of science through this program!
Current SW science students maintain the displays and provide tours for visiting schools.
Support for development and maintenance of the Lair has been graciously provided by the Blue Valley Educational Foundation as well as individual donations.
Watch for the Grand Opening of the Learning Lair in the first week of October 2012!
Teachers of Science may schedule times to bring their classes for a tour by contacting our curators:
Mrs. Dianne Dunn or Dr. Lynn Martens.
A preview of the program will occur in September before the main opening date. All interested Blue Valley teachers and adminstrators are invited and encouraged to visit! Please watch this website for further detailed information!
