"Everything ran like a well-oiled machine"
-Susan, Janie Darr teacher
Thank you for your interest in a school program at Ozark Natural Science Center (ONSC).
For 30 years, we have enjoyed sharing our big Ozark backyard with over 60,000 visiting children, just like your students.
Together, we have hiked our scenic trails, gazed at star-filled skies, and laughed around the campfire all while providing a great educational experience that helps children to achieve more in school.
ONSC offers school programs for 4th through 8th grade, and our lessons meet NGSS and Arkansas state standards.
During a 2-day, 1-night overnight program, teachers can choose 2 classes and 2 evening activities. The field trip also includes 2 guided hikes (field investigations).
