Florida Aquarium Launches Online STEM Learning

The Florida Aquarium has launched a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) online learning resource. This new resource is designed to provide parents and school kids with an abundance of educational resources in this time of closure, social distancing and homeschooling. Called Digital Resources in STEM, the free resource is for kids of all ages and will prove invaluable for teachers too.

“We are honored to be a part of the Tampa Bay learning community and beyond, and now more than ever, it is vital that engaging STEM content be available across a variety of platforms. We want to ensure that anyone unable to visit us in person still be afforded an opportunity to experience our dynamic programs,” said The Florida Aquarium Vice President of Learning, Debbi Stone.

The new online resource houses over 40 hours of video content, including lectures from scientific leaders; curriculum for high school, middle school and elementary students; STEM learning activities; and printable coloring sheets. This site will be continuously updated with content the Aquarium is generating on its social platforms as well.

This unique resource was built by Klemtek Media, a St. Petersburg, Florida Marketing Firm. “We are excited to partner with The Florida Aquarium on connecting families to such exciting content during these challenging times,” said Kyle Klement, President of Klemtek Media. “The Florida Aquarium is still delivering on its mission, even when guests are not able to visit and we know how important it is to support the communities we serve when they need it the most.”
