Animal Enrichment Challenge
Animal enrichment materials help keep animals healthy at the Zoo.
Enrichment objects come in all shapes, sizes and smells and are designed
to stimulate natural behaviors. In this program, educators (grades 3 – 12)
learn more about the enrichment program at the Zoo and how their
students can create their own animal enrichment ideas.
Educators who participate in this program can enter their students in
the Indianapolis Zoo Animal Enrichment Challenge. Students research
and gather information, develop ideas, create a design, generate an
enrichment prototype, test it and make revisions. This program aligns with
Indiana Academic Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.
