About the MarineQuest School Daze Program
Every year, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) hosts MarineQuest, a free open house for the public. But before the open house, FWRI holds a special version of MarineQuest called "School Daze." This event is open to students in grades four through eight. Attendance is by registration only. Students have the opportunity to tour lab stations managed by FWRI scientists. Vibrant exhibits with hands-on displays and activities draw students into the world of fish and wildlife research and the fascinating things that FWRI scientists discover.
Four tour sessions are offered on each of the two days of the School Daze program. The first tour session begins at 9 a.m. and is completed by 11:30 a.m. Subsequent sessions begin at the top of each hour (10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.). Each tour lasts for two-and-a-half hours. The last session ends at 2:30 p.m. We recommend that you arrive at the institute no later than 15 minutes before the tour is scheduled to begin.
