The Wildlings STEM Program is a nature-inspired science program that has been developed by the program's founder, Sarah Ney. Each week The Wildlings educators teach about a unique feature or organism of the Metcalfe Rock area. The day is anchored around a science lesson pertaining to an organism or feature after which students will go out into the forest and either conduct a corresponding experiment such as water sampling or participate in an exercise such as plant foraging or animal tracking. These activities encourage students to make the connection between the lesson learned at the beginning of the day with hands-on experience where students apply the knowledge they have acquired. Each student will have their own science nature journal in which they learn how to create labeled diagrams, practice data collection, and learn what a hypothesis is.
