Nahant Public Schools
Thanks to generous funding from the Nahant Education Foundation, the Marine Science Center Outreach Program is working with the Johnson Elementary School in Nahant to develop and implement marine science activities at every grade level. This is happening through three interactions each year between Marine Science Center and every class from PreK through Grade 6.
Programs include classroom and field-based exploration, the latter of which takes place largely in Nahant. Each grade level explores a different theme such as Habitats and Human Impacts for Kindergarten, Coastal Geology for Grade 3, and Water Quality in our Local Watersheds for Grade 6. All programming is designed with feedback from Johnson School staff and is tailored to complement the Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering Standards.
