Seacoast Science Center

Ocean education is what we do. We educate to motivate. We want everyone to recognize and understand that what we do every day has an impact on the health of the ocean and that ocean health impacts our daily lives. A healthy ocean drives our quality of life today and will for future generations. When we opened in 1992, the Center was a public/private partnership between the state, two non-profits and the University of New Hampshire (UNH). By 2001, we had outgrown that structure and became an independent non-profit organization.

The technology at the core of the Center’s new Gregg Interactive Learning Studio delivers a full suite of distance learning opportunities. With seven distinctly different habitats just outside the Center’s door, and a diversity of live animals that inhabit the aquaria and terraria, our educators are prepared to deliver an array of unique programs. Whether you chose one of our popular ready-to-roll programs, or a program designed to meet your specific needs, your students will always remember their exciting distance learning experience with Seacoast Science Center.

Coastal Critters: Life between the Tides
Grades: 1st-8thLength: 45 MinCategories: Environment, ScienceTimes: January 30, 2018 11:10 pm ESTJanuary 30, 2018 1:10 pm EST

Life between the tides can be tough. Join Seacoast Science Center naturalists for a virtual field trip to the shore, to explore the animals and plants that make inter tidal habitats their home. Learn about some of their amazing and sometimes funny physical and behavioral adaptations that make life in these challenging environments possible. This program highlights how individual species and entire classes of creatures have adapted to survive on the rocky shore, the sandy beach and the salt marsh. Students will see dramatic time-lapse images of the tidal cycle, videos of animal behavior, sea stars eating, lobsters molting, and footage of our tide pools. Our Seacoast Science Center naturalist will bring out live animals, demonstrate how these inter tidal animals feed, hunt, and protect themselves, and take students on a virtual trip to the Center and its tide pools.
