Spring Exploration Series

Science Exploration Series

The ERC’s Spring Exploration Series brings experts from various scientific fields to all 2nd and 3rd grade students in the public and private schools of Blaine County.

Every spring for six consecutive weeks, approximately 550 students attend each of these interactive visits and learn about a wide variety of environmental science topics. This program is in its 20th year and is offered to schools free of charge.
