Make a splash in the world of aquatic science using our interactive activities to learn about the importance of preserving and protecting our aquatic habitats. This kit was developed to complement programs delivered by the Atlantic Science Enterprise Center (ASEC). Programs were developed by Ingenium in partnership with ASEC and focus on aquatic sciences. The activities are available for use to anyone but are especially useful to introduce aquatic science concepts to students before or after an in-person ASEC program. The activities are intended for students in grades 6 to 10, however, activities can be adapted for use with any grade level or age group.
