The following field trip programs are conducted at our main facility. Students will be introduced to the mission of Healthy Aquatics Marine Institute as well as rotate through several interactive activity stations located throughout our facility. Students will also learn to use scientific tools, enhance their critical thinking skills, and investigate current and pressing environmental issues. 
 
Each program lasts approximately one hour each and you may choose up to three programs in one day. Programs can accommodate a maximum of 45 students and include 30 minutes for lunch as well as a interactive fish feeding encounter. Transportation and lunch must be arranged in advance and are the responsibilities of the lead teacher and chaperons.

Creature Corner: Invertebrate/ Vertebrate Laboratory (All Grades)                                              
Roll up your sleeves and get up-close and personal with the animals that live in our local waters. In this lab we use safe hands-on animal encounters to give students a chance to dive into scientific classification using their powers of observation.
 
Squid Dissection (3-12 Grade)
Take a closer look at the world of mollusks! Students work together in this squid lab to learn basic dissection techniques to investigate the anatomy of squid.
 
Water Quality Laboratory (6-12 Grade)
Excellent water quality is critical to the health of all marine creatures. In this lab, students will investigate the physical and chemical properties of water and their impact on marine life. Students will use tools and learn to measure pH, temperature, salinity, and check other parameters for impurities.
 
Biomimicry: Designed By Nature ( All Grades)
How does a nautilus regulate buoyancy? How does coral create and capture food? Take this design challenge and create your own  invention to address critical sustainability issues with these nature inspired design solutions.

Venomous or Poisonous? (5-12 Grade)
Both venomous and poisonous animals produce toxins that can be harmful or even lethal to another organism. During this program, students will learn the difference as well as how each toxin is delivered!

Sharks and Rays ( All Grades)
During the Sharks & Rays program students will explore the biology of these amazing creatures and what sets them apart from other fish relatives. Students will also explore the role of elasmobranchs in our oceans and how we can protect these important, yet often misunderstood, animals.
