Marine Mammal Rescue
Date and Time: September 13, 2022, 4:30pm
Grade Level: K-4
Meet a Marine Mammal Rescue expert to learn all about the species and their unique adaptations and characteristics that help them survive here in the Gulf of Maine. An MMR team member will take students on a mock rescue and release to learn about the biology, conservation and rehabilitation of whales and seals. At the end of the program, students will investigate ways that we can help keep our ocean and marine wildlife healthy.
What Makes A Whale, A Whale
Date & Times: December 5, 2022 at 12:10pm and 2:10pm

SSC has the largest collection of marine mammal skeletons in northern New England! In this program students will learn about the anatomy, migratory routes, and behavioral patterns of marine mammals. Students will look at the adaptations that make it possible for these animals to survive in the ocean and how some species have adapted to become the largest animals on our planet. Fantastic images and real whale bones make this program unforgettable.
Sharks, Skates and Rays
Date & Time: December 13, 2022 at 11:10am

Be The Solution To Ocean Pollution
Dates & Time: April 21, 2023 at 12:10pm
Grade Level: 4-7
Every year, about eight to twelve million metric tons of plastic is discarded into our oceans all around the world. Along with plastic pollution, marine life faces other forms of pollution like air, sound, and other anthropogenic causes. Students will explore all forms of pollution that threaten our world’s oceans and discuss solutions that we can do at home and throughout our everyday lives.
Rocky Shore Tide Pools: Animals and Adaptations

Magnified images and underwater video footage will complement your naturalist-led tide pool investigation to learn more about the unique attributes of the rocky intertidal ecosystem. Students will explore biodiversity, patterns and zonation, and the special adaptations that help animals and algae thrive in this challenging habitat. This program moves beyond an introduction to engage students in a closer examination of the special and wondrous adaptations necessary for survival in a wild and dynamic ecosystem.
