Field Trips

As an educator, you understand the value of providing a variety of learning opportunities for your students.
At HEART, we do, too.

Imagine being able to expose your students to what life is like for many children in the developing world without leaving Polk County. Located directly behind Warner University, the HEART Institute is a simulated developing world village that can offer a unique outdoor educational opportunity for students of any age.

During their interactive tour of the village, students may wind through the goat pastures, explore the organic garden, witness the effects of natural verses chemical fertilizers or experience the hardship of living with a limited water supply. They may try making bricks by hand, pumping water from the well or using a bicycle to generate electricity. Perhaps you’d like to provide an opportunity for your students to practice their problem solving skills. The low ropes course is the perfect place to do that.
