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 a fun, guided tour that includes a trip to the marine mammal overlook at Long Marine Laboratory.

Please note: Due to the grade-level-specific content, no more than two consecutive grade levels may be scheduled together for 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:
