These hands-on programs, with a focus on inquiry and discovery, were created by a New York State certified teacher to reinforce New York State Standards and the concepts needed for the State Assessment tests. Teachers can use these programs as a unique addition to a science unit, to make connections across different subject areas, or as a culminating experience to reinforce prior knowledge and curriculum. Our low student/teacher ratio enables us to emphasize experiential learning. Please contact us with any questions; and remember – most programs can be adapted to meet your specific needs.

Many programs can be brought to your location whether school or local estuary for your convenience.
