Learn how to incorporate local coastal ecosystems into your existing curriculum by joining the staff of the New England Aquarium for our On the Waterfront course, where we will learn of all things related to the shoreline. Participants will conduct field- and in-classroom investigations, apply inquiry skills and learn content knowledge through hands-on activities. Boston Harbor will be used as an example to teach concepts such as linking science and literacy, marine biodiversity, adaptations, ecosystems, properties of water, human impacts, and conservation efforts as well as much more.
