Discovery Labs Descriptions

Dive into the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with the Seymour Center’s Discovery Labs!

Live animals and realia motivate your students to become scientific investigators. Our hands-on Discovery Lab programs support NGSS three-dimensional science learning through engaging, age-appropriate activities led by our teams of marine science instructors. Your students will be inspired by real science to protect our ocean.

Following are descriptions of Discovery Labs by grade level. The main NGSS Performance Expectation supported by each program is shown in blue text. Because each Discovery Lab program is designed for grade-level-specific science standards, no more than two consecutive grade levels may be scheduled together for one Discovery Lab.
