“You and the Sea with the Smithsonian” School Program
“You and the Sea with the Smithsonian” is a program designed exclusively for groups of students of all ages. The program was developed with direct collaboration from the Environmental Education Directorate of the Ministry of Education of Panama.
A school group learns and has fun
During their visits, students participate in activities that complement classroom learning (i.e. school programs) through hands-on experiences that stimulate all of their senses.
