“We enjoyed the program so much , we hope to find a way to extend and build this into our permanent program! Our school recently reopened as a PBL/STEAM program, and we are seeking out these "out of the box" engaging experiences that set us apart from the status quo, and your program does exactly that.” -- Teacher from Washington Elementary, Sacramento
“You could teach this in a classroom but it wouldn’t be as impactful as this hands-on learning.” —Outdoor School Student
Camp SEA Lab’s goal is to provide hands-on marine science opportunities for students that encourage deeper understanding of our coasts and ocean. Our programs seek to both stimulate student interest in science and teach the importance of caring for the marine environment. To achieve this goal, our programs apply scientific practices of the Next Generation Science Standards while following the Framework for K-12 Science Education and NOAA’s Ocean Literacy Principles.
"I feel this brought science to life and hopefully inspired [the students] to challenge themselves. The naturalist provided content that will stay with the students forever. Honestly the program was exceptional. I had an amazing time and the students are sad they are leaving." - 6th Grade teacher from Madonna Del Sasso School, Salinas
