Tuesdays in the Field

Tuesdays in the Field is a specialized program created for K-12 homeschool students. The Education Team is excited to offer an experience that allows students the opportunity to engage in standard-based instruction at their own pace. Our Tuesdays in the Field homeschool experience is offered on the second Tuesday of the month, from September through February, between the hours of 9:00am-1:00pm.

Please Note:

  • Participants may enter through the education entrance between 9:00am-12:00pm.
  • Registration for the Tuesdays in the Field program includes Georgia Aquarium admission.
