In motion ,,,

Our Aquarium & Shark Lab are truly focused on education and enrichment.  
We integrate science, history, math, and culture into our immersive exhibits and education programs.  Like the tide, we are in continuous motion saying "Why not" and "What if" as our students and interns research ideas, document behaviors, and defy existing standards.
