Winter on the Farm and the Mystery of Energy
MSU Tollgate Farm in Novi, Michigan has interactive, educational, and fun school and community field trips designed for a variety of ages.
Winter on the Farm and the Mystery of Energy (Late January through February): Baby, it's cold outside, and we're investigating the phenomena of the transfer of energy in the winter farm setting. Traverse the farm as we investigate how animals on the farm cope with cold, collect and graph data during a hands-on insulation investigation, visit the greenhouse to experience first hand the impact of heat and light energy on growing plants, and test the transfer of heat energy while making a delicious treat. Suitable for 4th - 6th grades, this program aligns with Michigan performance expectations as students search the farm for signs of how energy is conserved, transferred, and used in times of cold, all while having fun and experiencing winter at Tollgate Farm!
Programs $ 12/per adult or child. Teachers are free. Financial aid process available.
