School at the Zoo

For 20 years the Louisville Zoo’s MetaZoo Discovery Center has been giving local students the opportunity to foster life science skills in its living classroom through the School at the Zoo program. Our program includes school visits, a weeklong field trip experience, and a school wide science night for the participating schools.

The scholarship application period is now open. 

This experience is for individual Jefferson County Public 3rdor 4th grade classes OR school grade levels made up of 60 students or less. It is free for students/grant funded (school buses are not provided).

Applications must be filled out by teachers interested in attending the program (not by school administration).  All School at the Zoo applications must be returned by May 7, 2018. Space in the program is extremely limited and not every school that applies is guaranteed a spot.
