Manatee Lagoon has teamed up with The Reef Institute to offer this free educational series for fifth grade students and classes! The Marine Science Series features ten weekly engaging lessons aligned with Next Generation Sunshine State Standards, providing the opportunity for students to take a deep dive into marine science and understand how living organisms, such as manatees and coral reefs, are connected. The lessons are offered in a live, virtual format and led by educators from Manatee Lagoon or The Reef Institute. The goal of the program is to educate students about the importance of marine conservation and inspire the next generation to preserve and protect the environment for future generations.

Dates: This 10-week series starts the week of Sept. 13 and runs through Nov. 19. Lessons will be offered once a week during the timeslot selected during registration. Each lesson will be approximately 20 minutes long with an additional 10 minutes for questions.

Audience: This program is designed for fifth grade students. This timeslot is designated for individuals or groups of any size (up to our system’s capacity). This timeslot can accommodate multiple bookings and will be hosted on the WebEx Events platform (additional details on WebEx Events can be found below under “Additional Information”).

Cost: The program is free with an option to make a donation to support The Reef Institute’s mission.

Registration: Space is limited. Advance registration is required to reserve a spot in this weekly timeslot for the 10-week live series. To participate in all ten live weekly lessons, registration must be completed by 5 p.m. on Sept. 9. Late registration will be accommodated based on availability and will enable participation in the remaining lessons beginning the week after registration is completed*.
