We have partnered with the Seminole Rest National Seashore Park which is home to a Burns Sci-Tech Adjunct Classroom at the lagoon. Field Trips include visits to the Estuary, Mosquito Lagoon, and Indian Mounds located near Seminole Rest National Seashore Park. Volunteer, Dr. James Carr, Environmental Consultant and Developer of the Student Ranger Program and the Summer Teacher Ranger program, donated $5,000 in marine testing and science lab equipment for use in our Adjunct Classroom. Marine Science Mentors work with students on Science Projects, and some projects are even on display for visitors who come to the park. Our main campus offers an Archaeological Digital Dig Program with a monthly on-campus ranger who presents to our student program.Read MoreShow Less- +

Zach Zacharius, Education Curator of the Museum of Arts and Sciences (MOAS), Daytona Beach, obtained a $10,000 Archaeology National Grant from the American Association of University Women for Burns Science and Technology Charter School. A “mock” dig site was created on the school campus, teaching all students about the science of archaeology. The school integrated this hands-on-activity into classroom academics. The MOAS also provides a Fall Family Science Night on the school campus, which included 15 science stations. Each grade level has the opportunity to attend the Children’s Science Center and planetarium presentations at the MOAS during the year for only $5.00.
Boston Whaler, located in Edgewater, Florida, has donated backpacks for students every year since the school opened in 2011. The backpacks are loaded with supplies and are delivered in a Boston Whaler boat at the beginning of each school year.
