Educator Resources


GulfQuest's goal is to provide teachers and their students with an unforgettable EDUCATIONAL experience.

GulfQuest offers the following resources to help educators maximize learning outcomes before, during and after their field trip to GulfQuest:

Treasure Hunts

Scavenger Hunts help students stay focused on learning outcomes. They also prompt them to engage with the exhibits on a deeper level. Here at GulfQuest we offer Hunts based on grade levels and content needs. Be sure to include chaperones- you might be surprised how much they enjoy these activities, too!
