DISCOVER programs for Homeschool Groups
Ideal for the late elementary, middle or high school student, these programs offer the opportunity to learn about marine ecology through discussion, hands on labs and discovery activities, and snorkeling in the actual marine habitats!
These programs are ONLY DESIGNED FOR GROUPS! Homeschool co-ops or other groups can schedule a standard MarineLab program, or select one of the programs below. As always, we can customize a program for your specific group, within the limits of our curriculum. Our minimum age is 9. You can visit our Field Trips and Activities page to find out the different types of components that can be combined into a MarineLab program.
Our programs are all-inclusive, so you don't need to worry about hotel rooms, meals, or snorkel gear! We can accommodate special meal restrictions such as gluten-free, peanut allergies, vegetarian and lactose intolerant.
The program components are correlated with the Florida Sunshine State Standards, and can enhance AP Environmental Science and AP Biology classes by providing hands-on lab and field experiences. If your homeschool group is studying marine science, or any ecological science, top it off with a trip to the Keys and the third largest coral reef in the world!
