The Coastal Children’s Museum announces its first afterschool enrichment program for fourth and fifth-graders: Sharing the Shoreline, Exploring Life along the Ocean’s Edge.

This hands-on, six-week program focuses on the unique adaptations marine creatures use to survive and thrive along Maine’s dynamic coastline. A collaboration with Project Noah, a free, online citizen-science tool supported by National Geographic, the Sharing the Shoreline program will allow students to work with experts to describe, identify and share their discoveries.

The program will run on Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m., beginning Wednesday, Oct. 5. The class will be limited to 12 students, so hurry to reserve a spot. Call the museum at 596-0300 or email to register your child.
