About This Page
Collection: Marine Discovery at the University of Arizona
Marine Discovery is a public outreach program that involves college, elementary and middle school students in an inquiry based and hands-on learning experience. During lab station activities, students have the opportunity to work with live marine animals and teaching specimens. Students are exposed to living and preserved organisms found in the Gulf of California and gain a general understanding of the scientific relationships between them. Student knowledge and interest in ocean life is enriched, and younger students have the opportunity to interact with other, more expert learners.
The Marine Discovery Program is offered through the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona, with funding from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Undergraduate students teach third through eighth grade students about the Gulf of California and the ocean in general during a field trip to the UA campus. Visit the Marine Discovery website to see a schedule and find out about bringing your class to the Marine Discovery field trip.
