Was a very entertaining way to teach so many STEM concepts and scientific fact. Students were engaged and the content supported classroom learning. Students were discussing possible future opportunities after the presentation.
Made STEM accessible to all students, even those who don't 'love science'

Great way to inspire students to be more curious and actively involved in science and STEM initiatives.

Celebrate NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK in Schools with:
THE MARINE TEAM
The oceans are needlessly being harmed on a daily basis. In today’s ever-changing world, those tasked with conserving our planet’s resources are members of an elite squad: The Marine Team. This educational incursion engages grade 5-9 school students in marine science and innovation to achieve long-term sustainability of our oceans.
The Marine Team is a 40 minute, live-in-school performance that consists of two professional actor/educators with two goals.
The first goal is to highlight what is ocean sustainability, how oceans impact our planet, solutions that generate healthy oceans and how YOU can help embrace innovative ocean technology.
The second goal is to make your students laugh so hard that they forget they’re learning!
The in-school program is a series of improvised comedy sketches between characters in all sorts of hilarious situations. Taking suggestions from the audience, the actors engage students to help create the show they see, forming a customized performance with each presentation.
