Learn About the Program

Courses are open to formal and informal educators, pre-service teachers and other professionals. Some of these courses are offered as part of the Advanced Inquiry Program Master’s degree (AIP). Students enrolled in AIP or other students taking the courses for credit will be given priority enrollment in courses offered for credit. If there is space in the course, Washington state-approved clock hours will be available to those participants not taking the course for credit. The courses are held at Woodland Park Zoo (unless otherwise noted) and include presentations by guest speakers, tours of zoo grounds, group discussions and hands-on activities.
