Zoo Education Programming
The NC Zoo offers a variety of educational programs for its visitors. For example, kidZone is a Zoo exhibit designed to encourage children to play outdoors. It provides a safe, reliable place for children to explore nature, connect with bugs and plants, develop empathy for animals and people, and enjoy everything under the sun.
This facility is also a centerpiece for the Zoo’s growing professional training programs in Playful Pedagogy. The Zoo also operates SmartCarts in various locations; these are small, portable and hands-on learning stations packed with interesting biological specimens and staffed by enthusiastic staff and volunteers eager to share their knowledge of the Zoo and its animals.

UNITE provides teachers with the tools and resources they need to teach about wildlife and resource conservation, and supports three Ugandan educators on a full-time basis to work with over 100 teachers in 10 local schools.
