The Science Center runs first grade field trip for all 16 elementary classrooms in Burlington.  The field trips take place at low tide in late May/early June in Marblehead MA.  Students learn about the tides, what causes the tides to happen and participate in a human model of the earth & moon in our solar system.  We then introduce the students to pictures and information about local algae and animal life within the tide pool.  The students, teachers and parent volunteers follow us into the tide pool for collection.  After collecting algae and animals, students then proceed to make observations about their collection items.  Some highlights are sponges, baby lobsters, giant kelp, sea robin fish and sea stars.
