K-12 Education Programs

Our new K-12 live education programs use sharks and technology as a way of getting students interested in STEM fields. In our curricula, we use content covering shark biology, technology used to study sharks, and how all of this can lead to varying careers in STEM fields. These NGSS-aligned programs will expose students to dynamic and interesting fields across disciplines and invoke excitement about marine science and beyond.

Currently, our programs are offered virtually and free of charge.
