Discovery Lab & Tour
The ultimate field trip! Immerse your students in hands-on lab activities and experiments using live animals and realia. Lab activities support the Next Generation Science Standards. The Discovery Lab is followed by a guided tour to sites at Long Marine Laboratory.
Reserved School Tour
Schedule a skillful guide to take your students through the sights and sounds of a working marine lab. While on tour, students discover how scientists learn from incredible marine mammals to help conserve their cousins in the wild. Marvel at the enormous “Ms. Blue,” one of the world’s largest whale skeletons. Discover how whales are suited for life in the sea and how scientists study the largest animals on the planet.
Self-Guided Exhibit Exploration
Design your own experience or use our pre-designed activities. Live animals inspire your students to make their own observations and develop questions as scientists do. Knowledgeable docents illuminate how researchers work in the lab and in the field. Students will learn how marine scientists think and work to understand life in the ocean and the ocean itself.
