Join us on ZOOM to become a citizen scientist! We will learn how scientists are able to study animals in their natural habitats, then practice our new skills at different aquarium exhibits. We will finish this program learning how we can use our senses to help us identify animals when we cannot see them. This program will help complete requirements for Daisy and Brownie Think Like a Scientist Journey.
Bring your pet or your favorite stuffy to our Zoom program! We will talk about the care they need and how we provide that care to aquarium animals. We will discover how we feed our sharks and tortoises and learn about activities we do to keep the animals healthy and safe. Then you will make a home for our favorite animals (cat? fish? giraffe?), so gather some recycled or general crafting materials and clear some space to get building! This program will help complete requirements 1, 2, 3, and 5 of the Brownies Pets Badge.
Join us for a virtual trip to the Maritime Aquarium on ZOOM! To help us learn about animals all over the world, we will visit the animals we have in our care at the aquarium. Just like scientists, we will study the animals in their habitat to understand how they are able to survive and discuss what may happen if their home changes. Bring some recycled or general crafting materials to create a habitat for our favorite animals! This program will help complete requirements 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the Animal Habitats Badge.
Programs utilize Zoom and can accommodate up to 40 scouts per program. Online registration is now open!
Sharks are one of our most misunderstood animals at the aquarium. Join us virtually to learn about the amazing reasons why sharks are top of the food chain. We will spend time learning about shark structures that help them survive in the ocean. To help us understand how shark swim, we need to get wet! Bring your bucket of water, and materials to help demonstrate how things may sink or float. As we experiment about buoyancy, we will discuss how this works, and how it relates to sharks.
This workshop will help meet requirement #3 for the Super Science adventure.
Each scout will need the following materials to participate in the hands-on activities associated with this adventure:
Tupperware of wash bin filled with a few inches of fresh water
variety of objects to put in the water (must be smaller than the depth of the water): examples - plastic utensils, pebbles, wood, fruit, veggies, beans, other plastic items, etc.
Paper towels (in case things get messy)

Take a virtual dive to the Maritime Aquarium! During this program, we will visit our seals, identify different structures they have, and explore how they are able to survive in their ocean habitat. It’s easy for us to learn about the seals at the aquarium, but how do scientists study seals? From a boat, of course! Let’s create a boat together using any recycled materials you can find. Gather your materials, and get ready to get wet!
This program will help meet requirement #6 for the Floats and Boats adventure.
Scouts will need the following materials to participate in the hands-on activities associated with this workshop:
A Tupperware or wash bin filled with a few inches of fresh water
A variety of clean recycled materials: anything you think may make a cool boat (cans, bottles, cardboard packaging, etc)
Masking tape or string (to hold recyclables together)
