Sky Island Science Investigators

Sky Island Science Investigators, part of the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research Outreach Programs.

We offer a diverse variety of science field classes – on the UA Campus at the Bryant Bannister Tree Ring Building, at Tumamoc Hill, and at field sites in the Catalina Mountains - where students learn that science is a dynamic process of gathering and evaluating information.  We also offer portable classroom visits if you are unable to visit the UA Campus.

This outreach program is innovative in that schoolchildren become the scientists, not just learn about scientific concepts. We want to make science accessible and relevant to the general public.

Audience:  PreK - 12th grade

Science Field(s): Dendrochronology, Archaeology, Biology, Earth Science, Ecology, General Science, and Geology

Cost: Our field classes are free.
