Students dissect cephalopods, explore remote-operated vehicles, and much more.
Aquarium Scholars is a partnership between the Aquariums, North Carolina public schools, and the nonprofit North Carolina Aquarium Society. Through this partnership, private donors help fund access to STEM-based Aquarium education programs for low-income students, with little or no cost to the schools or students.
