Science In A Tree

Welcome to Science in a Tree! We are a nonprofit educational mission founded by two friends who are passionate about working with kids and challenging them to explore the great outdoors. We specialize in a unique combination of recreational tree climbing, outdoor adventure learning, and experiential science education. Our motto is simple: Climb a Tree and Learn Cool Science!

We debuted the Science in a Tree program this past April with a huge 5-day climbing program at St. Raphael the Archangel. The event was covered live by Fox 2's Lisa Hart on their morning show on April 8, 2015 (sorry about the ad).

Many thanks go to the students & staff at St. Raphael for making our grand opening a truly special event. And thank you Principal Kim Vangel for giving us this amazing quote on live TV: "This is perfect! Who wouldn't want to do a science experiment from a tree?" We couldn't have said it any better than that.

We offer two general formats for climbing events:
    (1) We travel to you for an on-campus field-day event at your school
    (2) You travel to us for an outdoor fieldtrip at one of our facilities in the St. Louis area
Either way, the kids are going to have a great time and learn a lot. With each adventure, they get to enjoy the excitement of climbing safely up a tree along with the challenge of doing fun science experiments along the way.
