Six Flags Introduces ‘The Biology Experience’
The new educational program incorporates New Jersey Core Standards for high school science curriculums
This season Six Flags Great Adventure & Wild Safari will immerse high school students in biology and enable them to see first-hand the importance of interdependence and genetics to endangered and threatened species. The Biology Experience is a new exclusive Academic Adventure that will integrate New Jersey core educational standards for science with the study of animals in a hands-on, fun and memorable learning environment.
The program will offer a unique learning adventure by providing students with a private tour of our Wild Safari, marine mammal and tiger exhibits. This Academic Adventure will bring to life the role and importance of biology and will apply science curriculum to real life scenarios. Students will see first-hand how the application of biology is so integral in maintaining healthy animals in a zoological setting.
This ultimate educational experience will feature exotic animal residents from the Six Flags Wild Safari, Exploration Station, Dolphin Discovery and Temple of the Tiger. Animals that students will encounter include African elephants, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, Bengal tigers, capuchin monkeys, California sea lions, giraffe, kinkajous and more. For the first time, Six Flags Great Adventure will include an in-depth curriculum developed in conjunction with the Biology Teachers Association of New Jersey.
