In the Monterey Bay Area students and their teachers at the fifth grade level have a variety of resources available to them for further exploration and understanding of their classroom based Science curriculum. Extracurricular programs such as Science Camp, The Oâ€™Neill Sea Odyssey, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium provide opportunities for students to explore the world around them and make connections to their classroom based learning. These programs also allow students to expand their knowledge and experience concerning social structure and behavior, as they are given the chance to experience relatable subject matter in new environments. For many students, these programs may be their first exposure to sailing a boat, getting up close to an otter, or spending a week away from their family and school. By instilling in these students these new and viable educational problem solving tools, these programs bolster their work and understanding when they are back in the classroom.
