At BEES we believe that learning extends far beyond our classroom walls. Each month we will leave our building for an essential learning exploration. The exploration activities available in our field trips and overnight programs engage our students intellectually, socially, and physically, resulting in more-powerful and more-memorable learning experiences. Our most powerful kinds of memories are those of episodes in our lives—those experiences we can recall and relive throughout our lives. Those memories are created through sensory experiences: sight, touch, sound, smell, and taste. Educational experiences away from the classroom are a critical tool for creating these kinds of memories.
