SeaWorld is developing a new life science lab for middle school students.
The education and conservation department at SeaWorld is collaborating with the San Diego Unified School District and the San Diego Workforce Partnership to immerse students in the science of SeaWorld.
SeaWorld’s Ocean Link Lab is a project-based learning experience focused on the park’s Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Program.
Part of the Linked Learning and California Career Pathway Trust Initiatives, the program allows students to participate in topics such as in water analysis, food supply and marine debris.
Starting Tuesday, around 30 students from Wilson Middle School in Normal Heights will try out the program.
The program will be a regular part of the park’s offerings beginning next fall.
Over the last 52 years SeaWorld has rescued over 16,000 mammals, birds, turtles and other marine life.
