Sharks, Bio-Facts, Sea Lion Celebration, and More!
Dive into the New York Aquarium for an evening of fun, science, and adventure! Family Science Day is an open house, in which families can participate in exciting and engaging activities at the aquarium, such as studying animal bio-facts, interacting with sea creatures in our touch tank, observing marine animal behavior, and learning how to protect our oceans! You can also meet some of the Urban Advantage staff and educators and interact with other Urban Advantage schools and families. Here at the New York Aquarium, you can also come check out our brand new exhibit, Ocean Wonders: Sharks!
Family Science Days serve as a kickoff to our Urban Advantage program year, and is meant to get our schools, students and families excited about science and to create a memorable experience at our museums, gardens and zoos. Each of our eight UA institutions hosts a Family Science Day during the month of October. It is our hope that Family Science Day will spark student interest in science and inspire them to return to our institutions on their own.
How to attendLocation:
Families can attend Family Science Day by using an Urban Advantage Family Science Day flyer. These flyers are given to Urban Advantage teachers in September. Each flyer is good for up to 4 people to attend ONE Family Science Day event. Please note that the Family Science Day flyers can be used ONLY for scheduled Family Science Day events. Families can also reach out to their school’s Parent Coordinator to learn if they are planning a group visit to Family Science Day.
