Tuesdays in the Field Home School Programming

During this program, home school students and their accompanying adults will have exclusive access to our interactive Discovery Zone for a unique self-paced experience. Georgia Aquarium educators will be positioned throughout our Discovery Zone to facilitate a variety of standards-based activities for students K-12 that will allow your students to investigate the scientific process by making observations, applying knowledge, and drawing conclusions.

Note: the 'Tuesdays in the Field' atmosphere is an informal setting as opposed to a set program, where students are encouraged to stop and engage at a variety of learning opportunities located throughout our Discovery Zone. This is a self-paced experience and students are welcome to spend as much or as little time as they would like at each activity. Home school students and their chaperones are welcome to explore the main gallery spaces after their time in Discovery Zone.

Examples of learning opportunities may include but are not limited to:

  • Where In The World Is All The Water?
  • Peterson Preserve Scavenger Hunt
  • Experiments On The Go!
  • Shark Observations
  • and many more!​

If you have a request for a specific activity or standard to be addressed, please contact education@georgiaaquarium.org.
