Marine Science On-The-Go!


At Sanibel Sea School, every day is a field trip!  With a team dedicated to teaching children about the wonders of the ocean, they recently announced the launch of their new SEA — Science Experiments & Activities — Lab, a mobile lab that will teach the joys of marine science on-the-go.

The goal of the program is to expose students to marine science and technology, independent of their location.  The lab is equipped with microscopes, a smart TV, touch tank and variety of lab equipment for hands-on experiments for all ages.

SEA Lab will help facilitate education in two ways with on-the-go hands-on education at schools, libraries and community centers, as well as with outdoor education in the field.

At its debut earlier this summer at the Sanibel Public Library, more than 30 children participated in a squid dissection, plankton and “creature feature” labs.

In addition, beach-side use of the lab will allow students to dip their toes in the ocean, smell the stinky fish, taste the salty air and then step into a science laboratory.

For instance, the SEA Lab journeyed to Key Largo last month with the teenagers participating in the sea school’s Coral Reef Week, where the campers were able to conduct an assortment of experiments just steps away from the ocean.

This great organization just keeps on getting better!  Part of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation family, the Sanibel Sea School’s mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.  For more information, visit sanibelseaschool.org.
