Learn about New England's amazing marine life! Northeastern University Marine Science Center sessions for Sea Tots feature a particular animal or topic, with opportunities for kids to get up-close-and-personal with live critters. Also included are hands-on games or crafts based on the week's topic.
The Sea Tot program will be mostly indoors, but the mini biologist will definitely be venturing outdoors as well. The Northeastern University Marine Science Center have live marine animals kept in indoor touch tanks, but they're on an open seawater system... so some of their indoor activities bring the outdoors in - literally!
This program is a spectacular opportunity for North Shore kids to learn about our local marine wildlife. *Please note that we are not running the program on a drop-in or single-day basis any longer.
Register early! Space is limited. Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can email or call to get your child’s name penciled in on the list, but registration won’t be complete until we receive your completed form and payment. Please make checks out to “Northeastern University”.
