Discovery Days

Tuesdays this summer from July 10 – August 21 the SEA Discovery Center will be holding Discovery Days. 5-12 year olds and their guardians will enjoy story time, learning through exploration and discovery, and will create special art projects to take home. Each Tuesday will have a different topic, so join us for one or more!

Youth program participants and staff must abide by all University regulations and program rules.

Date: Tuesdays, July 10 – August 21, 2018
Time: 10:30 a.m. – noon
Audience: Ages 5-12 with parent or guardian
Cost: $10 per family



July 10 – Beach Exploration
We are kicking off Discovery Days with a low tide beach exploration and scavenger hunt! Please ensure your child brings good beach-walking shoes (i.e., rubber boots).
July 17 – Fascinating Fish 
Students will learn about the amazing fish of the Pacific Northwest, and then create their own fish print!
July 24 – Microscopic Life
Children will explore plankton, and look at the microscopic life in Liberty Bay! (We will be going on the dock, so participants under 50 lbs. will need to bring their own life jacket.)
July 31 – Salmon Day
A favorite of the Pacific Northwest, salmon will be our topic for this Discovery Day!
August 7 – What’s in a Shell?
Students will learn all about the different shells found in the Poulsbo area, and the amazing creatures that grow and use them. We will then use them to make personal mosaics.
August 14 – Plants of the Sea
Participants will create a beautiful algae press, and discover more about plant life in the ocean!
August 21 – Octopus’ Garden
Has your child ever wondered what an octopus has in its garden? They will have all of their octopus questions answered at our final Discovery Day!

Participants are asked to bring:

  • A healthy lunch and snack
