Get kids immersed in ocean education!

Get kids immersed in ocean education! Help send professional Mote educators to 30 classrooms in Sarasota County schools to provide standards-based, interactive teaching and hands-on activities aimed at demonstrating scientific concepts. Programs are based on local marine and coastal ecosystems with age-appropriate material for pre-K through 12 classes. This project will bring the science of the sea to over 900 Sarasota County students!

“Thank you for what you do. So many children need to be educated about the ocean and the creatures there. They will take what you teach them and apply it throughout their whole life. What you do is so important!” Parent of Mote student
