WorldStrides Florida Eco Programs Dive Deep into Science

Learning about marine science in the classroom is one thing, but exploring it first-hand is another! WorldStrides offers programs to Florida for students interested in all-things science. Here is just a sample of some of the unforgettable experiences our travelers can participate in while on a Florida program. Did someone say swimming with dolphins?

Splash into Science

This is the chance for you and your students to swim with dolphins, hike the Everglades a night, snorkel with tropical fish, and visit the world’s only state-certified sea turtle hospital as you explore the Florida Keys. It goes without saying this program incorporates environmental science and marine biology in a fun, interactive way.

Habitat: H20

Dive deep into marine biology in Tampa during this program. Students will swim with manatees, and go on an African safari when they get back on dry land at Busch Gardens. At Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, groups can touch playful stingrays and other aquatic life, and visit the world-class hospital where sick and injured manatees are treated. You can’t leave Florida without seeing an alligator! Sneak a peek at gators, otters, and more at Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park. The water has never been so entertaining!

Science in Motion

Put science in motion in Orlando and Tampa! Future astronauts, physicists, biologists, and more will jump at the chance to apply their skills at Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Kennedy Space Center, and the Florida Wetlands. With all those stops on the itinerary; science enthusiasts are sure to leave impressed!

 

Manatees are just one aspect of exploration students and teachers explore when they participate in these programs. Make a splash and check out all the WorldStrides Florida programs have to offer young scientists.
