Education & School Programs
Give your students the opportunity to explore North Shore marine life and help foster their curiosity, understanding and appreciation of the marine environment.
The WaterFront Center is proud to offer learning opportunities for students of all ages.
Our topics can be used to introduce, supplement, reinforce, or provide enrichment to students.
We offer standard and multi-day field trips, camp and vacation programs, school partnerships,
scout programing, and ongoing research projects.
If you are unable to come to us, many programs can be brought to your location whether school or local estuary for your convenience.
Our hands-on marine education 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.
We also offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Programs!
*Subject matter covered is tailored to meet the needs of your specific grade level or group needs.
