Grouper fish in Tropical exhibit - popup

Do you know a budding marine biologist? The Junior Biologist series of programs at the Aquarium will encourage a love of science in your seven- to twelve-year-old child.

Each 2-hour class includes theme related activities, guided gallery tour, interaction with our animal care staff behind-the-scenes, and a keepsake journal.


Sink into the watery world of fish with us as we survey the many amazing adaptations these scaly friends have. During this 2-hour program your seven- to twelve-year-old child will:

  • Touch animals in our private classroom touch pools
  • Feed fish behind-the-scenes with our animal care staff*
  • Learn the key characteristics that make a fish a fish
  • Look for fish on a guided tour of our Tropical Pacific Gallery
  • Record observations in a keepsake journal

Other activities may include:

  • Discover the function of fish shape and fins while assembling a two dimensional fish model
  • Observe fish using their fins in different ways on a scavenger hunt tour

*The Aquarium reserves the right to change the animal interactions without notice due to animal safety, exhibit maintenance, or animal health reasons.
