Welcome to the Red Vest Diaries! Red Vest Diaries is named for the red fleece vests NSA's young scientist/scholars wear when they are out and about off-campus, learning and exploring.
Natural Science Academy believes that getting kids off-campus to explore the many natural and cultural wonders of their home here in Minnesota, is a vital part of their education.
NSA kids and their intrepid teachers take an "EdVenture" trip each month (sometimes more) to expose them to parks, museums and wild places. Learning can happen anywhere not just inside of a school building. In fact, some of our best learning takes place outside the school walls!
