At SPLASh, we educate the next generation about marine
debris and pressing environmental concerns to equip
students with the knowledge and experience needed
to make a difference.
Our TEKS-supported programming offers a variety of
interactive activities for students to engage in real-world
environmental issues and solutions. We work with teachers
to tailor a program to specifically fit your students' needs
and learning goals.
We offer programs in person or virtually. Our staff can lead classroom-based lessons, plan a clean up at a local beach or waterway, and provide teachers with resources and support to lead activities and projects in their own classrooms. Ready to make a SPLASh in your classroom? Get in touch!
Our staff-led educational programming includes interactive lessons, field and classroom investigations, and extension activities to encourage students to put their knowledge into action. We will bring TEKS-supported curricula to your classroom, in-person or virtually.
Programming is free. Groups are responsible for transportation to field trip locations. Schedule a program with us, today!
