Marine and Aquatic Science Education Facilities in Southeast Florida

Can't make it to the Smithsonian Marine Ecosystems Exhibit? There are countless, quality marine and aquatic science education resources in Southeast Florida. Many are listed below. Links will open in a new window.

If you have a facility that provides on-site or outreach school programming in the marine or aquatic sciences, and you would like to see it added to the list, send an email to SMS Education. Thanks to David Moore of Miami-Dade College and other members of the Florida Marine Science Educators Association's Southeast Region for their help in compiling this list.
