Get students out of the classroom and up close to science they can touch


An important part of Seaside’s mission is to educate through action. We believe in the power of community engagement and project-based learning opportunities. 

Our science education programming focuses on: compostables in the marine environment; invasive species mitigation; mudflat acidification prevention; macroplastics mapping; fish ladder Maintenance; marine debris trawls; measuring microplastics in the sand; and sea level rise.
