Engaging Classes for Home Education
The Marine Science Institute puts students in physical contact with the SF Bay and coast environments to help cultivate their natural sense of curiosity, enrich their understanding of science, and foster a responsibility to protect the environment.
While MSI has created unique opportunities for home school students, you can see all of our traditional field trips here.
