I can't say enough about how great our experience was with Saltwater Classroom. They brought ocean science and pollution problems to life for our students with a thorough, well-organized program of hands-on experiments and activities on the beach, in the tidal pools, and back in the classroom as well. The kids loved it, they were engaged and having fun, and they learned a ton. The instructors were knowledgeable, patient, enthusiastic, and great with even the toughest kids, and they were a pleasure to work with for our staff. This is exactly the kind of field-based, hands-on, hard science that we believe creates authentic learning, and they delivered. Saltwater Classroom is the best!
