Seacoast Science Center drives positive change through science education that is interactive, personal, and fun. 

For us, it’s all about one-to-one, hands-on learning. 

Every day we see the wonder in our visitors’ eyes when they feel a sea star “walk” across their hands or see a scallop propel itself through the water. They are delighted by wildflowers along the woodland paths, discover fascinating inhabitants of a tide pool, watch the acrobatics of seabirds, and discover how saving seals and other marine mammals helps to monitor ocean health. 

Our professional staff and highly-skilled naturalists ensure that our exhibits, summer camps, educational programs, and community events engage visitors of all ages in stimulating experiences that turn wonder into understanding and inspire action to preserve our planet.
