Zoos play an important role in education by introducing students to inquiry-based science that captures their imaginations and encourages exploration and innovation.

In this time of social distancing, virtual opportunities are the next best thing to being able to visit Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in person. Whether learners are at home, at school, or at work and want to experience the Zoo there is an option for every occasion.

Zoo Science Units
These units for Grades 1-5 allow any student, anywhere, to step into the role of scientist and learn more about animals found in the wild and here at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. 

Virtual Field Trips
Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has created a brand new program that will allow students and learners of all ages to experience the Zoo online with a Virtual Field Trip. Join for a 45-minute live, interactive tour of the Zoo with a member of the Zoo's education staff as your guide.

Virtual Get Close with an Ambassador Animal
The Zoo can help spice up an online meeting, class or seminar with an online visit from a Zoo ambassador animal.

As one of the region’s foremost providers of lifelong learning opportunities, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo operates programs for students and visitors of all ages. From post-graduate research students to fourth-grade Career Day, the focus on science-learning and application runs deep. Cleveland Zoological Society donors have been central to these successful programs, ensuring access and affordability for more than 25 years.

Each year, roughly 100,000 students attend Zoo education programs – from week-long summer camps, to career days or programs for the homeschool community. Private philanthropic funding from Zoo Society donors allows the Zoo to provide free transportation and program scholarships to school districts in some of Northeast Ohio’s most underserved communities.
