Third to sixth grade students enrolled in Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s SEA Club (Science Education Afternoons) will learn while having fun exploring the local marine environment.  The club will meet from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on four consecutive Wednesdays, March 5 through the 26.
The Aquarium’s marine laboratory classroom will serve as a base station for hands-on ocean exploration. Under the guidance of CMA’s education staff, students will have an opportunity to use microscopes, binoculars, and other scientific tools during their expeditions around the Aquarium and different destinations within the Cabrillo Coastal Park. Activities may include treks to the adjacent Point Fermin tidepools, investigations of the sandy beach, and visits to the Salinas de San Pedro Saltmarsh where the children will observe animals in nature and learn about the marine habitats of Southern California. Students help plan the activities according to their interests. Our goal is for students to leave their SEA Club experience with a better understanding of and appreciation for their connection to the ocean.
The cost for four weekly sessions is $30 ($27 for members) and includes a SEA Club T-shirt.  Financial assistance is available.  Pre-registration is required.
