Discovery Labs Descriptions

anomone_touch

Our hands-on Discovery Labs incorporate the California Science Content Standards* in a series of engaging, age-appropriate activities. Classes are taught in our teaching and seawater labs by teams of science educators and volunteer instructors. Lab activities are followed by an engaging, guided tour to sites at Long Marine Laboratory. Please note: Due to construction underway to improve the marine mammal pools, guided tours will not visit the marine mammal overlook during the 2016-17 school year. Alternative tour sites will be included this year.

Discovery Lab programs are designed with grade-level-specific content, so no more than two consecutive grade levels may be scheduled together for any one program.

*Discovery Labs are currently being evaluated/revised to support the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). If you have any questions regarding the NGSS realignment process as it relates to Discovery Lab & Tours, please call the Seymour Center Youth Programs Department at (831) 459-3800.

The following are the descriptions for each Discovery Lab by grade level:
