Expand Your Students Understanding of Aquatic Ecosystems

This program is not currently available, please check back later for future availability.

Our engaging instructor-led programs provide focused learning opportunities where students can ask questions, collaborate and problem solve with the guidance of our Georgia Aquarium Educators. Programs are aligned to Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE) and include a grade-specific, downloadable Teacher Guide with pre- and post-visit activities. Instructor-led programs are 30 minutes for Pre-K and 45 minutes for Grades K-12. At the end of the program, groups will have the remainder of their time to enjoy the various galleries and presentations at the Aquarium.

Please note: Grants are available! Georgia Aquarium offers a Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) grant to ensure that diverse audiences, regardless of economic status, have an opportunity to participate in our unique educational experiences at no cost. Click here to learn more.
