Zoo School Visits Analysis

Sponsor - Los Angeles Zoo

University: Claremont Graduate University

Status: Completed 

Educational visits are an important community resource offered by the Zoo. From 2015/16 - 2017/18 approximately 139,000 students and chaperones visited each year from local schools, head starts, and LA Recreation and Parks centers. In 2018/19 this number dropped to approximately 129,000. This goal of the project was to use a decade of school reservation data to analyze which schools regularly come to the Zoo, from where, and details regarding a schools characteristics; e.g. identify gaps in underserved areas, communities, or school types; and identify any trends or changes from historic data.
