MFA-Learning Experiences

The National Aquarium will partner with Baltimore City Public Schools to implement an experiential afterschool learning program at select middle schools to address the area's lack of science/STEM educational opportunities, lack of information about STEM career pathways, and the need to conserve aquatic resources. Students will gain exposure to science in a structured way through hands-on activities guided by the program curriculum and fieldtrips. They also will learn about STEM career pathways by interacting with near-peer mentors and aquarium staff, and engage directly in the conservation of local aquatic environments through activities and fieldtrips.
