Life Science Programs

The Tennessee Aquarium offers Life Science Programs to home school students each year. One day a month (from September through March) students visit the Aquarium for a two-hour class. The classes are based on national and state science standards and include hands-on experiments and inquiry. Classes are divided into grades (4-6 and 7-10) and the subject matter changes each year. This year’s subject is "Aquarium Science".
