Cody's hands-on Science and Enterprise City programs are very popular with many New England schools. Both programs are completely aligned with the State Standards and GLE's.
Cody also offers a wide variety of educational and team building activites aimed towards creating community within a group of individuals including:
This is a round-robin activity where ﬁeld groups travel from station to station and attempt to complete a nonequipment initiative. Each station lasts for about 8-10
minutes, with each ﬁeld group visiting each teacher in turn.
Like Quest, science fair is a round-robin science activity, with each ﬁeld group leader leading one experiment for each ﬁeld group to rotate through. Each instructor prepares
an experiment or demonstration for the group.
The night hike is an opportunity for the ﬁeld groups to head out into the night and explore their own perception of darkness. They learn how the senses, speciﬁcally sight, are affected, by learning about and contrasting to nocturnal animals in nature. They then take part in activities that illustrate the difference between them and us!
This role-playing activity concerns itself with the routes, people and hideaways of the Underground Railroad of the 1830s. The students roleplay the parts of slaves escaping from the south to Canada. Adults play the parts of conductors leading slaves along the railroad, bounty hunters try to catch them, safe houses try to hide them and sheriffs interplay with townsfolk and abolitionists.
Cody Night Live
This is another activity that stresses teamwork and cooperation as students come up with skits and perform them in front of the group.
Predator & Prey
In this activity, students explore either the forest or ocean food chain. The aim for each group is to gain food, water and shelter so that they might ensure their own survival. Students split up, taking different places in the food chain; some might be hawks while other could be snakes, frogs or insects.
