What grade do you teach?



Our youngest students are invited to look for shapes, listen for sounds, feel textures, and follow the stories of animals in the ocean.


Kindergarten - 2nd Grade

Ocean habitats and unique adaptations are the focus of these programs, and most include touch time where students will experience a sea star, anemone, shark, and other tidepool animals.


3rd-5th Grade

Some of the ocean’s biggest and smallest inhabitants are explored in these programs that encourage students to see the ocean in a new way.


6th-8th Grade

In these hands-on labs, students investigate unique habitats, such as the deep sea, and scientific concepts, such as properties of water.


High School

Dissections and AP level labs challenge high schools students to explore and analyze the world around them.



Classes from colleges and universities are eligible for our low group rate when accompanied by an instructor.
