The Field Experience Program seeks to make school field trips to marine habitats more than “just a day at the beach.” Explore New England's animal and plant life with Aquarium experts. Each field experience includes a pre-visit in the classroom where we will introduce the ecosystem and a post-visit wrap up to emphasize the major learning goals. Hone science and literacy skills with journals, scientific tools and processes.
