TLE is proud to offer our flagship educational programs to the Kansas City community. It’s through the support of local businesses, community members and the educational community that we can continue to offer innovative educational opportunities to Kansas City students. Our innovative programs include curriculums that prepare students in the classroom for an incredible on-site experience at one of our state-of-the-art venues. Our programs are unique because they provide classroom curricula as well as a capstone experience where students can put their learning into action for a deeper level of engagement and learning. From their conception, Exchange City and EarthWorks have impacted, inspired and touched the lives of students on a daily basis. TLE is dedicated to the continued success of these two important programs.


Exchange City of Kansas City

Exchange City of Kansas City

Imagine how the world would run if a 5th grader were mayor or if an 11-year-old owned the bank. That’s exactly how Exchange City works and educators, parents and students all LOVE it. Exchange City began in 1980 as a way to teach Kansas City children important skills in economics, math and communication. The program involves a city of 14-business or organizations that students are tasked with managing. Entrepreneurial skills flourish as each student is assigned a job prior to arrival. They must use their skills from classroom lessons taught for several weeks prior to their field trip to Exchange City.


EarthWorks of Kansas City

EarthWorks is a budding scientist’s dream, a laboratory that comes to life. Our 5-habitat laboratory features real-life animals native to the Midwest area. For one day, students come in to investigate habitats and determine if the animals in each habitat can survive. Natural disasters throw curve balls in each habitat and students must work together through their unique science-related jobs to determine the sustainability of life.
