Discovery Labs Descriptions

anomone_touch

Our hands-on Discovery Labs incorporate science learning standards through 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.

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

*Discovery Labs are currently being 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.

Following are descriptions of 2016-17 Discovery Labs by grade level. Descriptions do not yet reflect new changes that link to Next Generation Science Standards. New descriptions will be available this fall.
