Exploration Friday is one of the hallmarks of Echo Canyon's tradition of innovative and hands-on learning. Four times a year, all ECS students have the opportunity to participate in two hour-long interactive exploratory classes during the school day. These classes are taught by community members, family, friends, and professionals with a passion for sharing their knowledge with children.
These classes give students a hands-on learning experience. Exploration Fridays have included taiko drumming, drama, songwriting, parkour, police robotics, forensics, veterinarian science, nursing, geo-caching, claymation, coding, architecture, city planning, dance, cooking, cultural celebrations, sports, fine arts and more. An ECS teacher is always present for each class.
We are always looking for new presenters, planning team members, suggestions and help on the day of the event.
