Fish Tales (Grades Pre-K through K)

Learning comes to life through stories, songs, lots of movement, and even the occasional live-animal friend. “Fish Tales” is ideal for school settings as well as at community centers, libraries or anywhere that grown-ups and kids can play. 45 minutes each.

Cost: $170 per session

I Notice, I Wonder (Grades Pre-K through 2)

Crafts, stories, drama and live animals in these hands-on programs encourage young students to use their diverse talents and observation skills in an exploration of what lives in Long Island Sound and the oceans beyond. One to four sessions. 45 minutes each.

Cost: $175 per session

Sound Explorers (Grades 3 through 5)

Long Island Sound is home to sharks, sea turtles, squid and more. Students learn what shark skin feels like and how to identify different kids of crabs and jellies. Live animals and science experiments bring to life the animals of the Sound, the issues they face, and what we all can do to make a difference in their environment. Six to eight sessions. One hour each.

Cost: $185 per session

Marine World STEM (Grades 5 through 8)

The Aquarium and marine world are fantastic venues for developing skills in science, technology, engineering and math. In this new program, students design a boat, create neutrally buoyant R.O.V models, explore the science of diving, and engineer adaptations for deep-sea animals. From examining the structures of plankton to learning how roller coasters work, each session provides students with evidence of the relevance of science to our everyday lives. Six to eight sessions. One hour each.

Cost: $215 per session

Junior Marine Biologist (Grades 6 through 8)

Students set up, stock and maintain a group aquarium with live animals. They learn about water chemistry and use scientific probes to monitor water quality. They also grow brine shrimp to feed their animals, dissect fish and squid to learn about their anatomy and survival needs, and use microscopes to view the unseen world of Long Island Sound. Eight to 10 sessions. One hours each.

Cost: $215 per session
