Our Programs

Your Watershed, Your BackyardProject BioEYES
“Project BioEYES,” our flagship program is a weeklong, hands-on science project that brings live zebrafish into the classroom. Students mate the fish, then raise the resulting embryos until they hatch out as clear, free-swimming larvae with beating hearts that can be seen under our provided microscopes. This program offers exemplary science curriculum in cell biology, genetics, and the scientific method, and is available for 2nd, 4th/5th,* 7th/8th*, and high school grades.

Fish DynamicsFish Dynamics
"Fish Dynamics" is a week-long program that follows up a week of "Project BioEYES." Its focus is on experimental design, allowing the students to create and perform their own experiment on how temperature affects the development of zebrafish embryos. This program is currently available through BioEYES Philadelphia and is being piloted at our other BioEYES hubs.

Fish DynamicsBioEYES Explorers Pre-K
"BioEYES Explorers Pre-K" brings the BioEYES experience to pre-K students, allowing our youngest scientists to observe and learn about zebrafish over the course of a one-hour lesson. During that time they use scientific tools like microscopes and hand lenses to observe the adult and baby fish, while learning about what living things need to survive and how humans and fish are similar and different. This program is currently available through BioEYES Philadelphia.

Your Watershed, Your BackyardYour Watershed, Your Backyard
Our two-week environmental program, “Your Watershed, Your Backyard,” is available to 6th/7th graders exclusively through our Baltimore location. This program builds upon our original zebrafish experiment with a focus on watershed ecology and environmental stewardship. The program includes a field trip to the students' local watershed, and incorporates the best practices of a Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience.
