We provide hands-on lab and field experiences for students of all ages, summer camps and career exploration programs for budding marine enthusiasts, and marine science and engineering workshops for educators.

Over 150,000 people pass through the doors of the Visitor Center annually to see the exhibits, join in hands-on activities and learn about marine animals and issues facing the coast, all without charge.
