ACES Ed Field Science Programs

The best classroom is the outdoors

Our field programs elevate traditional education by blending science, critical thinking, and outdoor hands-on learning. Each year, ACES Ed provides over 400 field programs with 62 partner schools.

Students are able to participate in activities such as studying geology while hiking at Maroon Lakes, harvesting potatoes at Rock Bottom Ranch, tracking winter animals in the snow, and digging snow pits to analyze the snowpack at the top of Aspen Mountain.
