Discover marine conservation with a REEF Ocean Explorers Education Program – where learning is an adventure! Our programs inspire and engage participants in immersive, hands-on learning and exploration. Programs feature marine conservation, biology, ecology, citizen science, invasive species, and service learning. We offer programs for schools, scouts, families, teachers, travel groups, and colleges. REEF Ocean Explorers Education Programs include:
Discovery Programs: Interactive classroom or field-based programs, these are ideal for groups that prefer a single-day program or want to incorporate REEF programming into a broader travel itinerary. Offered as virtual or in person sessions.
Expeditions: Full service multi-day travel learning programs in international and domestic destinations. In addition to customized educational content, packages can be tailored to include acommodations, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, animal encounters, and other activities.
Virtual Field Trips: Interactive field trip simulations with engaging lesson plans and activities to give students experiences and connections to the marine environment without leaving the classroom. Students explore what life is like as marine scientist by creating research trials and completing field journals.
Coming Soon: Virtual High School Case Studies: Created for cross-curricular access, case studies can be used as a mini-unit or a standalone lesson for Biology, Environmental Science, Speech, and Engineering courses. Themes include invasive lionfish removal and endangered Nassau Grouper preservation.
