Project SEE / White Farm

Project SEE (Science and Environmental Education) is a Concord School District science enrichment program founded in 1970. Project SEE delivers classroom and field trip programming to complement the district's elementary science curriculum.

Project SEE's goals are to 1) provide Concord students with concrete, hands-on science experiences, 2) develop scientific and environmental awareness, and 3) inspire good citizens with strong problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

The Project SEE team leads grade-level field trips for kindergarten to grade 6, both at the Project SEE Learning Center at White Farm and at locations around Concord. These field trips focus on outdoor and applied science experiences, building upon science content taught by teachers and tying to the Next Generation Science Standards. Our science educators also deliver regular lessons in all of our grade 1-5 classrooms, focusing on the hands-on practice of science skills.

You are welcome to visit White Farm to explore the outdoors for yourself. Come hike, ski, bird-watch, or pull weeds in the garden!

White Farm is located on Clinton Street in Concord.

January with Project SEE

All of Concord third grade students visited the White Farm in January for our Feel the Force field trip. Through play and exploration students experienced the "invisible" forces of magnetism, friction, and gravity. Students also investigated how unbalanced forces result in movement with games like tug of war.

Grade 6 students began preparing for their Winter Ecology field trips with in-class Project SEE lessons. Students examined evidence like tracks, food, and scat to learn how to determine what's living in an ecosystem in winter.

Science Webpage

On our Engaging in Science web page, you'll find many science videos created by the Project SEE team during the pandemic, with related hands-on activities you can do at school or at home.

Teachers and families can also find links to online science resources, ideas for outdoor exploration, and citizen science opportunities.
