The Aquarium’s education department received the 2014-2015 Pinnacle Award from the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) for its educational videoconference programs. The Pinnacle Award is given to institutions who receive “outstanding” scores on program evaluations from teachers. Teacher evaluations score educational content and audience engagement.
Since the program started in 2011, more than 10,200 students throughout the country have participated in the Aquarium’s videoconference programs. This is the Aquarium’s fourth consecutive CILC Pinnacle Award.
