What's Included

Afternoon Ecology is a program designed for learners who are curious about habitats in the San Francisco Bay. We offer three different sessions; one in fall, winter and spring, each with a unique curriculum that brings out the natural curiosity of young minds. These sessions can be taken independently or as a series. This is an excellent opportunity for students from surrounding communities to make friends while expanding their scientific knowledge in a fun and exciting way! Our Spring 2015 course will explore the tools and methods that marine scientists use in the field to gather information and conduct surveys. Students will have the opportunity to be scientists, learning how to catch and care for animals in our aquarium, record animal data, and even dissect a squid! Students will gain confidence in using scientific equipment, working within a group, and learn about the animals that they interact with.

About This Organizer

The Marine Science Institute was founded in 1970, around the time that the issue of water resources was becoming a major concern for many Bay Area inhabitants. The Institute's philosophy was founded on the idea that putting students in direct physical contact with their local bay environment will help cultivate their natural sense of curiosity while enriching their understanding of science and fostering a responsibility to protect their environment.

 

Marine Science Institute’s mission is to inspire respect and stewardship for the marine environment through experiential learning. We are dedicated to providing fun, safe, and exciting learning opportunities for budding biologists of all ages.
