Science Outreach Programs


The San Diego County Office of Education helps connect students to nature through two inquiry-based, standards-driven science outreach programs.

Splash Science Lab

Green Machine

For the 2020/2021 school year, the Outdoor Education Department created a virtual learning space at the East County Regional Education Center.  We will be able to provide an engaging, alternative instructional format of the Splash Science Lab, Green Machine Lab, and new programming.  One to four-hour block schedules will be available to kindergarten through eighth grade classes throughout the county. The virtual learning option will mirror the content and level of engagement of the onsite programs. Programs conducted at a school site will be provided with adherence to current policies of both the San Diego County Office of Education and local districts.
