In the Schools

Act Locally - Educate Globally

Since 1975, ACES Ed has partnered with local schools to provide a broad spectrum of science education in the classroom and in the field through  hands-on exploration. Regarded as "a science classroom without boundaries," ACES Ed curriculum is highly integrated with that of the schools. We provide support for under-funded programs stressed to meet increasing district and state academic standards. 

ACES provides nationally acclaimed, full-time, in-school environmental science education at Aspen Elementary School, Basalt Elementary School, Crystal River Elementary School in Carbondale, as well as science programs and field trips for more than 62 regional schools.
