Calling all educators! Visit the UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium for free and learn about our Pre-K-12 programs on Teacher Discovery Day taking place on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Meet our marine educators during special behind-the-scenes tours of our teaching spaces and learn about the variety of marine science programs that we offer at the aquarium. Teachers will have the opportunity to see some of our ambassador education animals while receiving information about hands-on, experiential education we provide to visiting school groups.
Tours will be offered every 30 minutes starting at 10 a.m.! Educators who present a school ID, proof of educator status or a homeschool certification letter will receive free admission for themselves and one guest.

The UGA Marine Education Center and Aquarium operates year-round and offers a hands-on, feet-in approach to learning about the coastal environment for students in grades Pre-K-12 as well as college students, teachers and the public. Educators can choose from a suite of classes, including boat trips to unique barrier islands, salt marsh explorations and lab studies of microscopic plankton found in Georgia’s coastal waters.
School visits to the facility can range in length, from one hour to several days. All programs are aligned with Georgia’s Standards of Excellence and Ocean Literacy standards. For more information and reservations, visit https://gacoast.uga.edu/planning-a-visit/
