Road Scholars – Adventures in Lifelong Learning (Intergenerational)

Exploring the Waters and Wilds of the Outerbanks.

Program intended for grandchildren from 9 – 12 years of age.Get up close and personal with the marine life of North Carolina’s Outer Banks as you and your grandchild cast fishing nets, examine your catch and thrill in the sight of creatures swimming along the shorelines. Onboard a research vessel, observe species trawled from waters supporting five species of sea turtles and nearly 100 species of fish and invertebrates. Any creatures you don’t observe at sea are sure to be out and about when you visit the North Carolina Aquarium’s 306,000-gallon Living Shipwreck exhibit. Practice wilderness survival techniques and hear stories and songs around the campfire.

Highlights

• Visit the fragile nesting habitat of endangered sea turtles with a naturalist and learn about the journey of baby sea turtles from nest to ocean.
• Take a scientific look at the market squid during squid dissection class.
• See owls, hawks and more during a live birds of prey presentation.
