At Driftwood Education Center teachers are able to choose from a variety of classes in which to have students participate. For example, ‘Merely Plankton’ allows students to learn about the thriving ecosystems of marshlands and the thousands of species that inhabit them. Or, choose to take ‘Feather Physics’ gives teaches students about the general principles behind the physics of flights. Students will be immerses in experimentation, discussion and observation to understand these flight principles. These are just two examples of a variety of class curriculum for your students!
Fort Frederica Serve Days are a time for students to join in and support their mission: “to preserve and protect the historic, cultural, and natural objects on our site, for the benefit and enjoyment of the public, now and in the future”. Our student serving teams have many different skills, but they have one thing in common; engaging in a meaningful service project where they travel on a class trip. We will join in the support of local projects such as Fort Frederica, and other local serving opportunities.
