Hotdish Hoedown! World's Best Workforce Event, Yee-Haw! Thursday November 17th Swing your partner!

What could be more American than folk dance, more Minnesotan than hotdish and more NSA than getting together and having a good time learning something? Dancin' machine or enthusiastic specatator, this event has it all!

Mid-May Mash-up Showcase Friday May 27, 12 Noon!

63 students and their teachers emerge from a week underground!

Let's do it for them!

Our first Project L.E.A.P. Family Work Date is set for Thursday May 12 at 6:00 pm. Bring your work gloves and garden tools and help us prepare for phase 1 of this years' plan to improve our outdoor play and learning space. L.E.A.P. stands for Learn, Explore And Play, which pretty much describes what goes on outside at NSA on a day to day basis. We will weed, mulch, put down landscape cloth, install edging and a few other not so heavy labor tasks. We are in need of potting soil, large planters, rocks (head size) to use as borders. Got some Round-up laying around? We have some noxious curley dock that is threatening our pollinator garden and our Master Naturalist tells us that's pretty much the only way to keep it from taking over. We would also like to set our "jump stump" pathway set in the ground so bring your shovel if that sounds fun. We hope to see you there!

Do you ever wonder...?

Wondering what NSA is all about? Curious about curriculum? Feel like finding out what might be happening in our classes indoors and out? Like learning about innovative practices? Well, that's only natural! The Natural Wonders tab will hook you up with our latest blog post to satify your wonderings about Natural Science Academy and perhaps inspire a few more. After all, wonder leads to discovery! So check in on from time to time to see what's on our minds here at NSA. Find it in the Quick Links menu to the left.

Calling all Worker bees! Project L.E.A.P. Workday August 6th!

Join us beginning at 8:00 am on Saturday August 6th to help us lay the beautiful pavers beneath the entrance arbor to NSA outdoor, classroom, playspace and gardens. This lovely walkway will wind from the arbor to the gardens and you can be a part of it! Bring gloves and your favorite shovel! 

Check out the Pollinate MN EdVenture Gallery!

Wow! What a trip! So many kids (and maybe a few adults) conquering their fear of bees and gaining new appreciation for this hard-working little creature that makes it possible for all of us to eat. It might be hard to tell who is who in those white suits but if you look hard you see someone you recognize. Either way, fun pictures of a fun day!
