Other Info
The Abby Sobrato Science and Sustainability Center is a new facility at Walden West - Saratoga. Science programs accommodate groups of up to 90 students during day-long field trips that involve students in a unique blend of activities. Students rotate through three investigation stations where they explore the outdoors, participate in a hands-on inquiry based science lesson, and a sustainability-related lesson.

These activities complement teachers’ classroom lessons and are aligned to California Science and Common Core State Standards. Each lesson is lead by the Sustainability Center Coordinator, a team of highly experienced volunteers, and school-provided parents who guide students through each experience.
