Info For Teens
We offer a wide range of opportunities for middle and high school students to serve as environmental champions and learn about careers in marine biology, environmental science and animal husbandry.
Our Career Shadow programs at Adventure Aquarium are designed for middle school or high school students and provide teens with an opportunity to see Aquarium husbandry staff in action and go behind the scenes to experience a day in the life of a marine biologist.
Our Junior Marine Biologist Camp is suitable for teens up to 14 years old, and includes opportunities for teens to visit aquarium exhibits and behind the scenes areas, conduct science experiments, and encounter live animals. This program is a great opportunity to explore future career paths in science and make a positive impact on our environment’s future.
Our outdoor programs give teens an opportunity to experience nature up close and personal and gain skills in environmental stewardship
