LIFE SCIENCE PROGRAMS
The Tennessee Aquarium offers Life Science Programs to home school students each year. One day a month (from September through March) students visit the Aquarium for a two-hour class. The classes are based on national and state science standards and include hands-on experiments and inquiry. Classes are divided into grades (4-6 and 7-10) and the subject matter changes each year. We will begin taking applications again in the summer of 2013.

Bring your family to the Tennessee Aquarium and make fascinating discoveries about the natural world. Plan your group field trip and enhance your visit with an education program or self-guided activity sheet.
The Tennessee Aquarium offers two volunteer positions for students. Youth volunteers assist Aquarium guests in several exhibits by sharing information about the animals and habitats represented. Day camp volunteers assist in all aspects of summer camp, including crafts, games, snacks and lessons.
