Texas State Aquarium DEEP Explorations Scholarship Application

DEEP Explorations invites explorers into an immersive, insider’s view of the exciting work zoo and aquarium professionals do each day.

This summer, our explorers will Discover, Explore, Enjoy and learn to Protect the amazing world around them.  Deep Explorations provides hands-on education while adding a significant behind the scenes, insider’s view of how STEM is put into action.  Explorers will work alongside TSA staff to learn the ins and outs of working at a zoo or aquarium.  They will help train some of the animals at Wildflight, prepare a daily diet and feed some the TSA resident animals, and learn the skills needed to rescue and rehabilitate wildlife.
