Marine Biologist for a Day

Splash into summer and discover what it takes to be a marine biologist at the Oklahoma Aquarium! Junior biologists will learn how we take care of our animals and their habitats on a daily basis. They'll prepare food in our kitchen, feed the animals on exhibit, and learn how to test water quality. Campers will also get a comprehensive behind-the-scenes tour above our shark tank, the area behind the sea turtle tank, our coral research lab, and our quarantine areas where baby bull sharks and other animals are kept prior to living on exhibit. To finish the day, the group will dissect a shark together, and examine tissues under a microscope.


The is a one-day program offered for ages 12 to 16 (separated into age appropriate groups). Junior biologists arrive at 8:30 a.m., ready to be immersed in the world of marine science. Plan to finish your day at 3 p.m.
