Learning Adventures Bus

Explore the wonders of Florida's environment with our Learning Adventures Bus (LAB), a mobile classroom bringing science to life for students across Southwest Florida.


Empowering Young Minds on the Move

The LAB offers an unparalleled educational journey, transforming the way students interact with science and the natural world. Tailored for Title I schools and community events, this state-of-the-art mobile classroom delivers hands-on, immersive learning experiences right to your doorstep.

Equipped with the latest technology and interactive tools, the LAB engages students in critical thinking and real-world problem-solving, focusing on Florida's unique ecosystems and conservation efforts. From exploring wildlife corridors to understanding the impact of microplastics, the LAB makes learning about environmental stewardship both accessible and exciting, fostering a new generation of informed conservationists.

Registration is currently full for this school year.

If you're unable to visit the Conservancy, we'll bring the experience to you with our Learning Adventures Bus!

This mobile science lab on wheels delivers engaging and educational activities focused on Florida's environment directly to Title I schools. Inside, students have the chance to engage with interactive games about natural resources and participate in activities aligned with the Sunshine State Standards, utilizing scientific tools such as microscopes and calipers. Outside, the adventure continues with hands-on experiences like a mobile critter touch tank and simulated python tracking.

While the LAB is primarily aimed at enriching the education of students at Title I schools, it is also available for other school groups and community events upon request, though availability may be limited.

This innovative mobile classroom is equipped with the latest technology, including 4k microscopes and the NOAA Science on a Sphere experience, projected on an interactive touch table.

For the 2023-24 school year, the Conservancy is extending the LAB's after-school programs to community partners in Collier County, ensuring that students from underserved and underrepresented communities have access to our unique, immersive learning experiences.
