Pricing and Registration.
YSI maintains three Science and Nature Centers where we deliver our inquiry-based science programs: Alum Rock Park, San Jose; Sanborn County Park, Saratoga; and Vasona Lake County Park, Los Gatos. Each YSI Science and Nature Center has specialized and unique artifacts, collections, and resources that connect children with nature while teaching science.
If you cannot bring your class/group to us, we can bring our programs to you (please see below for programs that can be brought to your site). All YSI programs are aligned to the latest curriculum standards.
Limited scholarships (including the cost of bus transportation) may be available for Title I schools on a first-come, first-served basis.
