Texas School Programs

CaveSim is based in Colorado, but we make regular trips to Texas for school and general-public programs.  Our school programs are aligned with Texas education standards (TEKS), as outlined in the documents below.  Please click below to see what each part of our program looks like:

We've had the privileged of doing some truly wonderful programs in Texas, as shown by the photos below.  We're excited about working with you, too.  Reach out to Dave at jacksondmit@cavesim.com to talk about how we can partner with you.
