The Abby Sobrato Science and Sustainability Center in Saratoga is a brand new, one-of-a-kind facility in Santa Clara County. Science programs accommodate groups of up to 60 students during day-long field trips that involve students in a unique blend of activities.
Students rotate through three investigative stations where they explore the outdoors and participate in a hands-on inquiry-based science lesson and a sustainability-related lesson. These activities complement teachers' classroom lessons and are aligned to California Science Standards. Each lesson is lead by the Science and Sustainability Center Coordinator, center-provided volunteers, and school-provided parents who guide students through each experience.
