Birch Aquarium at Scripps 2021-22 School Programs
We are dedicated to providing NGSS-aligned, hands-on programming that connects your students to the ocean, Earth, and atmosphere while developing critical thinking skills. Whether you book a field trip to the aquarium for a Discovery Lab or a Self-Guided Visit, or an Aquarium Express Outreach at your school site, or a Beach Teach at La Jolla Shores, we meet you and your students where you are!
