Home School

During this program, home school students and their accompanying adults will have exclusive access to our interactive Discovery Zone for a unique self-paced experience. Georgia Aquarium educators will be positioned at age appropriate activity stations throughout our Discovery Zone and in our classrooms to facilitate a variety of standards-based activities for students K-12 that will allow your students to investigate the scientific process by making observations, applying knowledge, and drawing conclusions.

Note: the 'Tuesdays in the Field' atmosphere will resemble a science festival setting, where students are encouraged to stop and engage at activity stations located throughout our Discovery Zone. This is a self-paced experience and students are welcome to spend as much or as little time as they would like at each station.

All Guests are required to purchase a Home School ticket for entry.
