Seaquaria in your Classroom.

Our classroom programs are designed to inspire and support responsible and informed environmental stewards and citizen scientists. Students are encouraged to interact with their environment in respectful and novel ways. 

Seaquaria in your Classroom comes in a multi-series program, the Salish Sea Safari, and in short form programs that run between 1.5 to 2 hours. We offer our short form programs in the classroom, virtually, and on field trips.

Each program can accommodate 1 class with up to 30 students.

We are now booking programs for the 2023 – 2024 school year.

Salish Sea Safari

Students will explore the world of marine life in this six-session program, which covers six different marine phyla: Porifera, Cnidaria, Mollusca, Echinodermata, Arthropoda, and Chordata.

Each session includes a brief interactive presentation on each phylum, as well as hands-on activities with our animal ambassadors. Each activity reinforces the lesson from that session while also getting them excited about what they’ll learn next week!
