Aquarium on Wheels

Aquarium on Wheels

Aquarium on Wheels is an award-winning after-school and summer program for Baltimore-area high school students. The program combines scientific research, conservation activities, job training, and the theater arts to promote environmental stewardship.

The program includes:

  • Training and field trips to learn about aquatic organisms, cooperative skills, and teaching techniques
  • Creation of an original play and discovery lab
  • Summertime performance of plays on the road at Enoch Pratt Free Library branches throughout the city.
