The Curriculum Enrichment Program (CEP) strives to enhance local STEM development by focusing on supporting local teachers that would like to bring BIOS's cutting edge science and immersive experiences to their students. Additionally, staff of CEP volunteer and present at career fairs, arrange and host work shadow placements, and serve as judges at science fairs throughout the academic year.

Are you a teacher interested in the experiences that BIOS could offer your class? Please contact oa@bios.edu to book one of the following experiences:

Please see descriptions of Curriculum Enrichment Program offerings here. Ocean Academy is committed to supporting students’ experiential learning needs, and in recognition of the financial limitations of schools, Ocean Academy Field Trip Grants are available to support these experiences.

Additionally, Ocean Academy believes in building and maintaining collaborations with other local organizations centered on delivering hands-on science experiences that plunge students into learning. Our relationships improve our ability to promote personal growth, academic achievement and stewardship of the ocean environment among Bermudian youth.

The current organizations working with Ocean Academy’s Curriculum Enrichment Program are; Bermuda Sloop Foundation, Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo (BAMZ), The Family Center, and Raleigh Bermuda. The Curriculum Enrichment Program supports these organizations through hands-on activities that foster ocean literacy through experiential learning.
