OCEARCH Educational Curriculum

Lesson plans for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 are now available for free download. Addressing a tremendous demand for dynamic STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) content, OCEARCH and Landry’s Inc. proudly present a new curriculum that allows students to learn alongside Ph.D’s – for free – in a program that will eventually span K-12. Based on real science and the Global Shark Tracker™, this dynamic curriculum is intended to promote environmental awareness and to prepare students of all ages for careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.
