Hey Parents! Looking for a family fun idea to enhance your visit? Shreveport AQUAdemy will enrich your experience with self guided educational adventures through the aquarium, inspired by Louisiana science standards. Complete one lesson each visit. Complete all four and get a prize!
The program is completely free for members and for a limited time is included in admission fee for nonmembers. Not a member? Consider becoming a member as memberships pay for themselves in 2-3 visits!
The lesson packets are customized for grades K-6. You and your kids will explore each exhibit with a deeper understanding by talking to our educators and observing and recording animal behaviors. Participants will gain a deeper respect for the aquatic world and act as informed, empowered stewards of our mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures.
HOW DO I BEGIN?

Members have free entry. Non-members purchase aquarium tickets in advance.
Come on down to the aquarium. We prefer students to come on weekdays (last entry is 5 p.m.) while the aquarium is less busy so you are able to spend more time at each exhibit and spend more time talking with our educators
Visit each of our galleries, in order, and spend time looking at all of the creatures, observing their behaviors, reading signage and talking with our educators. In your packets there will be several questions and tasks for each gallery related to each lesson topic
