Marine Science Days

Since 2011, DEI has been providing experiential, hands-on science and math education to Kindergarten-12th grade students, as well as training and assistance to teachers, through our Marine Science Days program.

Participants gain a better understanding of the scientific process through an in-depth immersion in intertidal and rocky shoreline ecology.  Our ‘Let’s Find Out’ approach is integrated into qualitative and quantitative activities, providing teachers and their students useful and repeatable methods that can be used in any investigative setting. This blog post details the types of Marine Science Days investigations students undertake.

Please contact DEI’s Education Center Director Colleen Haskell at 497-5769 x 5 if you are a teacher who would like your class to attend Marine Science Days. Please note that during the Covid-19 health crisis DEI will not be hosting any in-house education programs.
