All educational programs at Auerfarm combine direct experience with agriculture and nature through hands-on experiences, observation, and reflection. Programs can focus on biology, biotechnology, horticulture and math, addressing content standards and expected performances in science and other disiplines. Programs are aligned with Connecticut State Department of Education Science Curriculum Framework for students pre-K through high school, Common Core standards, and Next Generation Science standards. 

All programs encourage critical thinking and curiosity, while providing the concrete hands-on discovery experiences essential to motivate and inspire scientific literacy.
