Middle School Workshops
OPAK offers various workshops, from learning about plankton and plastics, marine life communication, and marsh critters. Middle school students learn how to operate a microscope, identify marine life, understand the marine food web and develop advocacy skills.
High School Workshops
Through hands-on workshops, high school students learn how to create a marine protected area or research how plankton and plastics impact ocean life and the marine food web. All workshops educate students on advocacy communication.
