GulfQuest is excited to offer Spring Maritime Academies, 2018! Choose from three uniquely themed Academies that have exciting curriculum filled with STEM components, exhibit time, art, music, games, and fun! Each Academy starts daily at 8:30 a.m., and ends at 3:00 p.m. Choose one, two, or all three days for your Cadet to attend! The overall theme for the day is the same for all grades; however, the campers will be divided into grade levels: K-2, 3-4, 5-6 for age appropriate activities. Cadets will also visit and experience GulfQuest exhibits related to the day's theme. Our Academies are led by GulfQuest educators in a safe and secure learning environment.
Cadets will investigate the science behind the unpredictable weather on the Gulf of Mexico, and use investigative techniques to learn more about oil spills and red tides. At this Academy, cadets will put their problem solving skills to the test to save our estuary.
Have you ever wondered what creatures ruled the depths of the Gulf of Mexico in ages past? Cadets will explore the mosasaurs, marine reptiles, and marine life from long ago through fossils and hands-on learning activities in GulfQuest exhibits and classrooms.
“It’s a pirate’s life for me!” Ahoy, scallywags and buccaneers! In this Academy, Cadets will learn about what life was really like for pirates on the Gulf of Mexico and all around the world! From ships, to treasure, to food: Is a pirate’s life REALLY for us?

ARMED TO THE TEETH
We're well prepared when we are "armed to the teeth." Think of a pirate, standing on deck with his cannons loaded, a flintlock pistol in each hand, and a cutlass clasped between his jaws, ready for any kind of combat.
