Group rate admission includes touch tank programming included with your discounted price. If you want, at no extra charge, we will provide a Scavenger Hunt recommended for all grade levels. The hunt will incorporate the Learning and Common Core Standards.
We'll email you a plan that will be fun and educational for your entire class. When your class books time at the Aquarium it also includes one of our sea lion shows, as well as any public presentations. A schedule of daily activities can be found here.
 
Many school-age children are curious about our trainers and what they do and how they work with our animals. For just $20, your entire group will be joined by one of our Marine Mammal Trainers after the show and talk with you about our sea lions and what their jobs entail. As a keepsake souvenir we will take a photograph of your group with our Trainer and have the picture printed and ready before you leave.

Creating a science experience with erie 1 boces

Students will be challenged with gathering information as professional scientists. Students will utilize technology in order to observe the flora and fauna of the Aquarium to create or support a hypothesis using iPad technology. They will make use of their findings to create a project or model to support their argument. Teachers will facilitate the students throughout the process in order to enhance success. The teachers will receive professional development on the NYS Science Standards in order to ensure future curriculum alignment. This project allows students a finished product and ownership of learning, thereby, creating a deeper understanding of the concepts. Your field trip also includes a Touch Tank!

Additional Fee Opportunities:

  • Squid Dissection - Students 12 years and older
  • Meet the Trainer Talks
  • Marine Mammal Enrichment - Students will learn about the importance of enrichment and design a toy for the marine mammals
