SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Twirl offers field trips for preschool through fifth grade students. Our free and fun-filled field trip program is a welcome resource for kids who may not have been to Twirl and for teachers who don’t have funding to take their students outside of Taos. It’s fun for everyone to get Twirly at the end of the semester!

Please plan on visiting for up to an hour and a half if you want time for outdoor play in our courtyard. We require a chaperone to student ratio of 1:8 for all groups.

WINTER 2018 FIELD TRIPS: Available Monday through Thursday, December 1st - 20th, 2018

Explore Twirl Aglow, participate in a scavenger hunt and do a seasonal craft project. These field trips take about an hour.

For scheduling or questions, please email anais@twirltaos.org or call 575-751-1402. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Twirl can also help you book an Explora science outreach program for your school. Find out more in our Explora section.

These programs are offered free to Taos community schools thanks to the generous support from individuals and foundations. Learn how you can support these programs at twirltaos.org/donate.

TWIRL & ROBOTICS IN TAOS SCHOOLS

Twirl is excited to be partnering with local schools to provide opportunities for 5th grade students and their teachers to participate in robotics. We are half way through a five-week robotics program at Taos Day School and will be working with Arroyos del Norte and Enos Garcia before year-end, and other elementary schools in the spring. Our in-school programming will culminate in a mini robotics rally for 5th graders at the 2019 INVENT EVENT (Saturday April 27 SAVE THE DATE!).

The goals of the program are: to provide more opportunities for robotics instruction at elementary levels, building interest and competence before middle and high school; provide opportunities for 5th graders to participate in competitive robotics at a local level, and build capacity for teaching robotics in elementary school. Liana Bayles, former robotics and enhancement teacher at Anansi Charter, is facilitating the program, assisted by Taos High Senior Jenay Barela, a national-award winning coder! We're really excited to see where this program goes and are also collaborating with Taos Youth Coding Club on their efforts to expand access to and interest in coding and robotics.
