High Touch High Tech:
Science Education In A FUN Way Through "hands-on" Exploration! Our programs are designed to meet the Georgia Standards of Excellence. We will be happy to tailor our programs to meet your school's specific curricular needs.
High Touch High Tech delivers 90 minute, in-school science field trips, usually broken into two 45 minute periods over two days for middle school. Our degreed professionals take over your regular period times, so your daily schedule remains the same. Students become scientists and learn by doing the actual experiments. Our programs are totally hands-on and totally participatory by each child.
High Touch High Tech provides all equipment and materials in this supply intensive educational experience. Many programs provide take home experiments. We can present in a science lab, spare room, media center, or your classroom.
Stimulate children's imagination & curiosity for science!
Program cost for a two-day trip is $12.50 per student. If there are less than 100 students per day, over two days, there is a minimum charge of $1,250.00.
-Premium supply surcharge will apply to programs with an **

MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Physically experience how motion and mass create gravity. Use our models to SEE the different phases of the moon. Do you know what GEORGIA and MARS have in common? Try a spectroscopy experiment to learn how astronomers identify the atmospheric gases of planets as well as the age of stars. Learn about the placement of stars and constellations and even take home a star finder you make yourself. GSE: S6E1, S6E2, S6E3, S6E4
Sailing horse latitudes, changing your attitudes, the weather never stays quite the same. Air pressure and convection currents are the main categories in this fully immersive program. Intelligent and age-appropriate experiments challenge students to discover the origins and means of weather patterns and regional climates as well as how they change. GSE: S6E3a, S6E3b
Delve into plate tectonics while investigating the constructive and destructive forces that create landforms. Dig deep into the topic of volcanoes and become familiar with some of the most consequential eruptions in Earth's history. Correlate local geological events to the entire planet while building your own dynamic, take-home model of tectonic forces and processes. GSE: S6E5d, S6E5e, S6E5f, S6E5g
Learn the relationship among minerals, rocks and soils. Collect and learn to identify minerals from around the world through an array of standard mineral tests. Discover the field of sedimentology through fossils to indicate the changes in life over the course of Earth’s history. Learn to identify rocks, including many found locally through the use of a dichotomous key and by applying the knowledge learned from mineral tests. GSE: S6E5a, S6E5b, S6E5c, S6E5h
HEARTS, BRAINS, EYES, and MORE! Get the FEEL of how your brain controls your organ systems. Examine real eyes inside and out. Be a-MAZE-d as you follow the blood's flow through the heart. Use authentic stethoscopes to hear your heartbeat! Fool your brain with optical illusions and make one to take home. GSE: S7L2b, S7L2c
A comparative anatomy study of living things. Before dissection, students will explore the branch of taxonomy and why dissection helps us better understand the intricacies of living things. Next, we will conduct an invertebrate examination of earthworms and crayfish. Next, "get a backbone" and explore the internal anatomy of a frog. Non-toxic, limited odor "PERFECT SOLUTION" from Carolina Biological is used. GSE: S7L1
Learn the “bare bone facts” about classifying organisms. It’s ok to be spineless as we explore the world of invertebrates. Compare and contrast different animals and plants by their physical and cellular structure. Get hands-on with skulls, Microslides, X-rays and more! Even touch some of our LIVING invertebrates if you dare! GSE: S7L1
Involve students by becoming REAL scientists performing REAL experiments!
