Educational Animal Programs
Expanding  and Enhancing Learning
Learning with Mary Vogas

Mary Vogas combines science with creativity to enhance many types of learning styles. A big emphasis is placed on incorporating as many life science TEKS as possible in each program. All the programs have many items to touch and see. Teachers and students really like the real specimens used in the programs. Mary has ten years of experience teaching science in the public schools at the high school level. Students will be eager to learn more about animals after Mary’s program.

“The Endangered Species presentation to our fourth graders, by far, was the most mesmerizing and captivating presentation I have ever seen brought to a campus.  The students were engaged and active in the presentation and absolutely amazed by the hands-on items.  
An absolute A+ relevant learning experience for our students!”
