Bring science to life for your community group! We’ll come to you and bring an interactive presentation or an activity table for your special event.
Large Group Presentations
Each program consists of a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute touch table and question and answer session with one of our expert staff. Large Group Presentations are best for general public audiences, such as library programs or community events. These programs are designed for ages 4 and up.
Reptiles! (45 minutes)
Meet two of the Aquarium’s reptile animal ambassadors, and identify, compare and contrast their adaptations and how these features help them survive in their habitats. Learn about the reptiles that call Texas home and what we can do to conserve them.
Texas Coastal Creatures (45 minutes)
From sea turtles to sea stars, learn about the creatures that call our Texas beaches and Gulf Coast waters home. Meet and greet live marine invertebrates, and learn what we can do to conserve marine life in the Gulf of Mexico.
Let’s Talk Sharks (45 minutes)
How do sharks survive the challenges of nature and those presented by humans? Participants will investigate shark adaptations for swimming, sensing prey and escaping predators. They will also discover how scientists study and track sharks in the ocean and what they can do to save sharks.
