Ocean Education info for teachers  

Welcome to 2014!

Whether it's investigating the digestive system of a mackerel, hiking through California's ecosystems, setting sail on the high seas, or stepping into the role of a marine biologist on a research vessel, the Ocean Institute has a program for YOU!

The Ocean Institute has been teaching students for over 30 years through hands-on educational experiences. All of our award-winning programs incorporate California state standards, enhancing your students' educational experience and providing a launching pad for your classroom teaching opportunities.


Our Field Trips

Ocean Institute representatives can help you determine the best program to meet your needs. Give us a call today at (949) 496-2274 or explore our field trip and program offerings to discover the unique educational adventures that await your students.

Concerned about funding for our field trips? Let us know! The Ocean Institute has Student Aid funds available to help students in need, as well as our ever-popular Adopt-A-Class program. We will work with you to make certain that every student has a chance to attend your field trip.

Field trips at the Ocean Institute provide students with unique experiences that cannot be replicated in the traditional classroom. Whether students are conducting fish dissections or spending the night aboard a tallship, they all are inspired to learn more about the ocean environment and facts.
