Museum Based Scientific Learning Experiences

Trestle is guiding Science Galaxy through the City of Boulder's entitlement process. The Hopper provides an opportunity for families to learn from inquiry-based STEAM experiences in a safe an innovative manner. You will find a personalized menu of science and tech challenges that encourages families to explore, build, play, and eat. It is an inspiring gathering space that fosters a sense of belonging, a fluid layout that is nimble and changing, with an educational emphasis on process over content. The Hopper prioritizes skill development over knowledge through four key learning concepts: critical thinking, conservation, curiosity, and creativity. Additionally, The Hopper’s five key learning strategies help translate aspirations and ideas into experiences and environments. These strategies are self discovery, real world innovation, multi-generational group learning, hands on challenges, and stimulating environment.
