Hands-on Experiential Education
One of the core components of the SRC Program is providing experiential learning opportunities to young adults. Tag a shark, plant a coral, measure a mangrove. The Shark Research & Conservation Program provides educational experiences to groups of middle and high school students year-round. Your class will take an active role in real scientific projects, learn the scientific method, and assist in protecting threatened marine resources.
Students connect with marine science in an exciting, participatory setting, augmenting traditional classroom education. SRC scientists, staff, interns and volunteers serve as mentors and teachers during field trips. With a ratio of one mentor per every four students, SRC trips are personalized learning experiences.
