Fifth-grade students at Ruskin participate in a five-day science outdoor school program. The week-long program is held at the Walden West Science Center in Saratoga, CA. Walden West's science program emphasizes learning by doing through California State Science Standards-based curriculum. Students participate in hands-on, intensive studies in the areas of animal habitat, ecosystems, and plant identification, while building social skills and enhancing responsibility through the use of cabin groups. Students and teachers live on site and eat meals together in a family style atmosphere.
If you would like to sponsor a student or make a donation to theNancy Perrel Memorial Science Camp Scholarship fund, please contact Ruskin at (408) 923-1950.
