As a teacher, you're always looking for new ways to inspire and engage curious minds. Allow us to serve as an educational resource for you and your students. Dive into the world of wonder and water by taking students on a journey “from North Carolina’s mountains to the sea.” We offer a wide array of educational opportunities for teachers that can be an incredible supplement to your lesson plan. Contact us today to learn more about how we come to your classroom virtually today.
Outreach programs bring the aquarium to your classroom. Plan your field trips or scavenger hunts. Learn about some of the animals we have at the aquarium and download some free aquarium worksheets. Are you a teacher at a Title 1 school? Look into our Aquarium Scholar mini-grants.
