Teacher workshop

Teacher Workshops

Teachers can take advantage of the many workshops and in-service opportunities available through the Tennessee Aquarium. Many of these classes can be hosted at the Aquarium or at your school. Additionally, classes can be tailored to fit your school in-service schedule.

Adopt-A-Stream & Southeastern Fish Sampling 
Saturday    |     September 9     |     8:30 AM  - 5:00 PM 

Teachers will complete training using Georgia Adopt-A-Stream methods to test water quality. Upon successful completion, participates will be certified in macroinvertebrate and chemical monitoring. Teachers can use these methods to get students involved in citizen science and water quality issues. We will also discover the rich biodiversity in our southeastern rivers and streams by observing the fish found in a local creek.

**This workshop will be indoors and outdoors. Please come prepared to get in the water. Waders will be provided.

Location: Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute
Price: $25*
*Registration fee will be refunded upon completion of workshop.
