Mississippi Aquarium welcomes homeschool families and groups to visit, explore, and participate in hands-on educational activities. Our themed programs are designed for students of all ages and are the perfect complement to any science curriculum.

This month we are celebrating the holiday with a spook-tacular science lesson - Creepy Chemistry, October 19th. 

Ever wonder how the animal kingdom works? Well, chemistry is a major behind-the-scenes factor. This homeschool day explores how chemistry plays a hand in how our vet team monitors animal health. Visit with real shark researchers from USM and see how DNA is extracted and analyzed. Unravel the mystery of how toxins functions, and the animals that use them. Calculate the reasons why stress is bad for animals, and mix chemicals to create the building blocks that compose shells!
