The New England Aquarium strives to connect our Boston and Cambridge neighbors with their local ocean.
Our Community Programs offerings provide quality enrichment opportunities to youth, families, adults, and staff in the Out-of-School time community with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Math)—including field trips to the New England Aquarium and hands-on STEM workshops for youth and families.
Non-profit, community-based organizations located in and serving residents of Boston or Cambridge in Out-of-School time are eligible to apply for these opportunities. We offer several ways to access the New England Aquarium—explore them all!
