More than 30 programs - all STEM-focused and aligned to Next Generation Science (NGSS) Common Core (CCSS) and Connecticut Science standards - are offered during the school year. They're presented in our classrooms, and in the field explorations at local beaches, riversides and aboard the Aquarium's research vessel. We even have a "Traveling Teacher" initiative that brings the Aquarium into school classrooms!
The formal learning doesn't stop when the final school bell rings in June. The Maritime Aquarium's summer camp programs are weeklong (and sometimes longer) adventures into the marine world.
