Sparking wonder in the classroom and the outdoors
Our extensive education programs kindle curiosity and prepare students to excel in science at an early age. Since 1975, ACES Ed has partnered with local schools to provide environmental education in the classroom and in the field through hands-on exploration and investigation. Regarded as “a science classroom without boundaries,” ACES Ed curriculum is aligned with national and state science standards, and classroom lessons are deeply integrated with field programs at sites in the Roaring Fork Valley and western Garfield County. Our mission is to foster generations of ecologically literate citizens who are stewards of our planet.
