Great American Teach-In

The Florida Aquarium is proud to be a participant in the annual Great American Teach-In held each November. This is an important educational opportunity for our local community and for us as we strive to educate and entertain the next generation.

We will be accepting partnership requests for the 2022 Great American Teach-In beginning in late summer. Teachers and administrators are invited to check back for updates. While we wish we could visit every school that inquires, we simply are unable to do so. We will do our best to make it to as many schools as possible.

Thank you for considering The Florida Aquarium for your school’s Great American Teach-In!
