Can’t come to the Aquarium? Then let the Aquarium come to YOU! Learn all about the wildlife and the natural world without ever leaving your classroom or facility.

Even though grade ranges are suggested for each program, programs will always be adjusted to meet the needs of the students. If you have students with special needs, please note those on your request form below, and we will do everything possible to accommodate those students.

Most programs are aligned with science standards of Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. 

*Please note, all programs require booking at least 10 business days in advance.
