Experiential Learning

Through the experiential learning field trips, Paul and I have learned so much about sunny Central Florida. We thoroughly enjoyed a pontoon excursion on Lake Dora, a tour of the Orlando International Airport to see the amazing art collection we had always been in too much of a hurry to notice, and jam-packed-with-information tours of the Orlando Wetlands and the Center for Birds of Prey. And did I mention how much we learned when we toured the UCF College of Medicine? Thank you, LIFE at UCF–we are eager to join LIFE friends on more of these field trips!

Guided Tour of the Pompeii Exhibit at the Orlando Science Center

Please check your email for sign-up

We’ve all heard the story…Vesuvius erupts…town below is decimated… Although ruins were discovered in 1709, excavation didn’t begin until 1748. In 1763, an inscription (“Rei publicae Pompeianorum”) was found that identified the site as Pompeii. The work at these towns in the mid-18th century marked the start of the modern science of archaeology.
