Bring your School to Maple Sugaring Class at Beaver Brook!
Chemistry, Botany, Math, Science, History, evolving technologies…… It all comes into play when learning about the unique process of maple sugaring.
The season is short: Last week of February -1st week of April and it is a phenomenom unique to NE North America.
Students will learn tree ID, photosynthesis, how to use a hand drill, measure diameter and circumference of trees, about evaporation, fire and boiling temperatures, grades of syrup. We even have a puppet show for young students including Rooty, Leah the Leaf and Sugar (the maple tree).
Don’t miss it! Call 603-465-7787 to book a field trip for your students. A true sign of spring!
