Marine Biologist In Action

Quick Details

Do you love the ocean? Would you like to spend much of your life focused on it? Then a career as a marine biologist may be for you!

To get a better understanding of this field, come spend the day at the Aquarium learning about ocean ecosystems and the variety of life found among them. In this one-day long program, we will use aquarium exhibits and local environments to test water samples for chemicals and hunt for animal life, as well as explore the diversity of ocean life through preserved specimens and dissections.

Just like trained marine biologists, we will strive to understand the habitat that covers most of our planet while also learning how to preserve it.

This program is for youth ages 12-16.

When: Wednesday, August 4th or Wednesday, August 25th (separate sessions), 9-4pm

Cost: $60/ $50 (Aquarium members)

Please note:

  • This is an in-person camp that takes place at the Aquarium. Capacity is limited to allow for social distancing between participants, but participants are still encouraged to wear masks throughout the program. Due to capacity limitations, we kindly ask parents to either refrain from attending with their children or purchase their own spot in the class.
  • Participants will need to bring clothes they do not mind getting a little wet and boots suited to go into a bit of water.
  • Participants will need to bring their own lunches and water bottles. Snacks and water will be provided.
  • This is one class that is offered on multiple dates. Participants should only register for one date.
