Special Needs

Add some fun with the NC Aquarium!

Aquarium Outreach programs are a great way to bring the environment and environmental awareness to groups with special needs. Taking your camp or classroom on a field trip to the beach, marsh, or wetlands may be challenging, but the benefits to your students are extremely rewarding. Our Outreach programs take the challenges out, while leaving the benefits of an outdoor experience.

Live animals and appropriate activities bring the excitement, fun and learning of field trip right to your group. Our tactile programs allow participants to experience nature through models, shells, stuffed creatures and live animals.

We adapt each program to meet the particular skills and needs of your group.
