DISL - Sea Lab Science Fridays

March 15, 2021

Come and join us for a Friday of marine science! Discovery Hall Programs is offering a day of drop-in classes for home school students, for parents looking for enrichment activities for their children, for students who can join us after a day of virtual learning, or just for folks who love to learn about all things marine science.

On the first and third Fridays of each month, we are offering three different field classes each approximately two hours long. Each month, we offer two different themes Ocean Animal Biology and Ocean STEM. Learners can participate in only one class, take two or three classes on the same day or take all six classes over the course of a month, Some of the classes are appropriate for all ages, while younger students will benefit from working with an accompanying adult for others.

Upcoming Dates:
  • April 9 - Ocean Animal Biology
  • May 21 - Ocean STEM

We do ask that you pre-register here for these class(es) so we know how many individuals to expect, but we also recognize that sometimes you just have to head to the beach. If you find yourself in a day before planning situation, please just give us a ring before heading down to make sure there is space available in the program for that day. Please note that the weather on Dauphin Island can be different from that in Mobile or areas farther north: only severe weather conditions result in cancellation. Cancellations due to weather will be posted on our Facebook page.

Many of your questions will likely be answered in the registration form, but contact us at or (251) 861-2141, x 7515 if you need additional information.
