from Mote Marine Laboratory - SEA Trek

Program image

Go on a lively journey with Mote as we explore and learn more about local habitats and adaptations during a virtual visit to the new “Bay Project.” This interactive science exploration will take you virtually to "The Bay" to learn more about this community park. During this class students will be transformed into scientists to learn how to use tools and to make observations. Students will learn what it's like to be a scientist while investigating plants, animals, and the bay environment along the way.  Each student will be provided with a Field Guide to follow along and take notes.
