The Como residency program is designed to be a high-dosage program that connects elementary school classrooms with the plants and animals of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. Students learn about different biomes and have the chance to apply the skills needed for STEM focused careers. We offer two different program formats to reach schools throughout Minnesota and thanks to the generous funding from the Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Grant the residency program is FREE (including transportation).
