Aquarium & Shark Lab by Team ECCO
Our Connection With Ocean Education
The Aquarium & Shark Lab is focused on education, enrichment, and exploration of the ocean world.
Science, history, math, and culture are integrated into our exhibits and programs. Like the tide, we are in a continuous motion saying "Why not" and "What if" as our students and interns research ideas, document, and defy existing standards.
