Your generosity makes children and our oceans the big winners. Our Schools and Scholarship Fund enables us to provide marine science education for children throughout the year. Programs include our popular Ocean Explorers summer camp and our amazing K-12 Discovery Labs. In addition, your gift provides college students with the opportunity to participate in programs that mentor youth throughout the year. Let your generosity be the spark for a lifetime’s passion for marine science!
Scholarship funds may be directed to:
- K-12 and community college school programs (Discovery Labs) that engage students in age-appropriate, hands-on activities where students gain a sense of what it is like to be a marine scientist
- Ocean Explorers, an annual 10-week series of extensive marine science camps for children ages 7 to 14
- Training and coordination of university students working in all aspects of children‘s education in the exhibit hall, aquarium, classrooms, and through community outreach
