Student FAQ

The station is not your typical classroom!

We get into the field, get wet, get messy, and have a blast with the ocean as our classroom!

Our students facilitate field trips for local elementary schools, but don't worry! Every student, outgoing or shy, always succeeds at teaching field trips. We give them the confidence to teach children and adults!

Our students participate in many events throughout the Panhandle, from special needs events to SeaPerch ROV competitions.

We want students who are passionate about the ocean and want to make a difference in their community!

We love students who want to be involved and go above and beyond!
