Enriching Science Education

PRC’s programs introduce participants to regional and global environmental issues and offer unique solutions easily addressed by students. Programs can be scheduled at a school or as a field trip to PRC’s facility in Ridley Creek State Park (Delaware County). All of PRC’s programs align with PA Department of Education standards and are a valuable resource for meeting “Environment and Ecology” and “Science and Technology” standards.
