We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
From the native vegetation to a range of guided and self-driven experiences, the Robert and Elizabeth Karplus Outdoor Nature Lab provides a unique space where all visitors will make close observations of, and deepen their connection with, the natural environment.
