About K-12 Education

The Estuarium offers extensive education programming in a variety of estuary and marine topics for PreK through grade 12. Our programs offer students unique hands-on activities and are linked to the STEM standards, Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Ocean Literacy Frameworks.


Online Estuary Education

Social distancing precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 have unfortunately lowered access to quality education resources for thousands of students in Puget Sound. The Estuarium is pushing forward to provide crucial estuary education to our community for free online! During the following weeks we will be sharing our curriculum in a series of interactive online classes. Join our team for virtual demonstrations at the Estuarium!


School Estuary Kits

The Puget Sound Estuarium is excited to pilot twenty estuary themed kits for grades 6th-8th. All kits include enough materials for a group of 30 students and the content is designed for age appropriate learning. The School Estuary Kits support current educational standards (Next Generation Science Standards, STEM Literacy and Estuary Principles & Concepts).
