Day of the Coast
Bring the sea to your school
The Day of the Coast program provides an opportunity for elementary through high school students to experience hands-on learning about the marine environment. UNH Marine Docents can provide a variety of our SeaTrek programs in one day! We’ll meet with your staff to design the day so that we can include your specific curriculum goals in our programs, typically 4-5 SeaTrek topics, each presented multiple times throughout the day. Each ‘Day of the Coast’ is a unique event tailored to your school.
Our programs are available all day or for a few hours. Collaborating with you, we can completely customize the event schedule to involve multiple classroom spaces and programs.
Each session lasts about 45 to 55 minutes, depending on the school's schedule. Organizers can request any of these programs: Echinoderms, Evolution (grades K-3), Fish Printing, Great Bay Estuary, Lobsters, Octopuses, Plate Tectonics, Rocky Shore, SCUBA, Sandy Beach, Sea Chantey Singers, Seaweeds, Squid Disssection, and Whales.
Full descriptions can be found on our SeaTrek webpage.
