Visitors in front of the Open Sea Exhibit

Special needs students are encouraged to participate in our Self-Guided and Discovery Lab field trip programs. If you're the lead teacher of a special needs class with fewer than the required number of students for these programs, our staff may be able to arrange a customized program to meet the needs of your group. Please e-mail schoolprograms@mbayaq.org and include the following information, and we will get back to you:

  • School name
  • Lead teacher name
  • Contact phone number
  • Total number of students
  • Preferred date and time of visit
  • Description of specific needs and/or accommodations (i.e., visually impaired, moderate/severe, one-to-one aide, etc.)
