All of our programs are designed to support the Next Generation Science Standards and the science curriculum you develop for your school, classroom and students. We will work with you to provide a memorable experience either at CuriOdyssey or at your school site. We provide a safe learning environment that encourages exploration and discovery.

Our Approach: Our programs engage students in experiences and interactions with phenomena that encourages questions, uses all of their senses, and fosters critical thinking – plus, they are fun! This approach aligns with the “Next Generation Science Standards” and actively involves students in enjoyable science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning.

CuriOdyssey Approach

Align with the “Next Generation Science Standards."
Our engaging field trip and group programs give students experiences with
phenomena that encourage inquiry and develop critical thinking.

CuriOdyssey is a nonprofit and relies on program fees and contributed support to provide care for our animals and give the superpower of science to the next generation of critical thinkers.


Help provide for the care and feeding of our wildlife guests by sponsoring an animal of your choice for a year.
