Teacher's spark your student’s interest in science as you explore real world animal care challenges in these special discovery days at Denver Zoo. Secret Science Day maps lead students throughout the zoo to gain an insider view into ways that keepers, veterinarians, nutritionists, trainers and exhibit designers meet the challenges of caring for our wild family.

Zoo staff and volunteers will help your students uncover the inside workings of Denver Zoo, encourage them to make observations at exhibits, discuss ideas with their peers, and share what they’ve learned. The more they engage, the more they discover – students who interact with Secret Science Day experts receive tips on where to see exciting shows and demonstrations, interact with keepers and vets, and meet live animals up close!
