Have us set up an aquarium in your classroom!  All aquariums feature local animals from the Atlantic Ocean. We take care of the tank so you can concentrate on the lessons.

There are two aquarium formats available to your school. An in-depth month-long program, and a two-week series concentrating on a specific concept or animal group. See which format best suits your needs.

 

4 Week Aquarium Program

This interactive program allows you to utilize living marine life in your classroom. We will set up a 20 gallon tank for one month. Each week we will return to introduce a new set of animals.

Week 2: Crustaceans (crabs, shrimp and barnacles)
