We Teach Florida's Teachers and Children
The Aquarium's hands-on education programs reach thousands of students each year, inspiring the scientists and environmentalists of tomorrow.
Teachers from all over Florida come to The Aquarium to learn how to excite their students about learning marine science. Our renovated Education Center will have:
- Themed classrooms for students and teachers
- A fully equipped laboratory for hands-on learning
- Wi-Fi and live video conferencing to allow students to interact with our researchers in the field and to reach out to students in other countries
- Touch tanks with interactive touch screens (smart white boards) to take students on an eye-opening journey from the ecosystems in their backyards to the world's oceans
