Distance Learning for Groups

Teachers: Bring a dolphin into your classroom!

As much as you’d like to bring your students to Dolphin Research Center, sometimes, that just isn’t possible. Now our new distance learning program helps bring the dolphins to your classroom!

Thanks to web cam and Internet technology, you and your classroom can visit Dolphin Research Center, meet our marine mammal family and engage in question and answer sessions with experts in the fields of marine mammal care, training, and research.

Different options are available, depending on your interests.

All presentations can be modified for any age group and are aligned with Ocean Literacy Principles, National Standards and Florida Standards.

(We can also align to other state standards upon request)

Our Distance Learning studio based programs consist of 45-60 minute interactive presentations, including discussions with a marine mammal expert, demonstrations given by our dolphins, question and answer sessions and more.

Live from the Dock programming with marine mammal experts and members of our dolphin family is now available as well!

Programs available:

Resource Library

Experts Available to Speak with Your Students Include:

  • Marine Mammal Biologist
  • Marine Mammal Trainer
  • Research Scientist

Distance Learning opportunities are reasonably priced at only $95 per session for Studio Based programming and $120 for Live From the Docks programming. They are offered throughout the year, direct from the Florida Keys to your classroom.

Want something out of the box? Ask us! We can build a distance learning program for you!
