Discover the Seattle Aquarium with your students! Guide them through face-to-face interactions with marine animals as they explore the exhibits, from the cool waters of Puget Sound to the tropical coral reefs of the Pacific. Make sure to stop by our hands-on tide pools, interact with a diver at one of our interpretive shows, and visit our new harbor seal exhibit.
Students learn best about their local environment through hands-on experiences in the outdoors. Our seasonal field labs combine classroom training with the best of field science to foster student learning about the processes of nature in our local watershed and at the beach.
