5th Grade Science/Math - Waco, TX

Education in Action's "Texas Measures Up" program takes students to the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute and Mayborn Museum, both in Waco. At the Dr Pepper Museum, young entrepreneurs gain financial literacy and exercise math skills as they develop a new product and take it to market! Then it's off to Waco's Mayborn Museum to experience wetlands, ecosystems, life cycles, and physical properties of the earth's surface as students travel through the Brazos River, limestone cave, and Texas forest exhibits! Program is aligned with 5th grade math and science TEKS. The best part is, we handle the details so you don’t have to. Charter bus? Check. Reservations? Check.
