Marine Science Floating Lab is a half-day field trip on the San Diego Bay in a boat outfitted with oceanographic equipment specifically for student use. Incorporating hands-on learning and major components of the state science framework, students participate in teams, manipulating oceanographic equipment, making observations, and gathering data and specimens from the ocean and sea bottom.


Marine Science Floating Lab provides students the opportunity to learn about oceanography with actual observations and experiences on the bay as well as to study marine organisms in their offshore habitat. The

program’s ultimate goal is to increase students’ content knowledge of the marine environment.
