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

One to four sessions. 45 minutes each.

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. 

Sound Explorers (Grades 3-5)

Six to eight sessions. One hour each.

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. 

Marine World STEM (Grades 5-8)

Six to eight sessions. One hour each.

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 ROV 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.

Junior Marine Biologist (Grades 6-8)

Eight to 10 sessions. Two hours each.

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.
