Ocean Discovery Institute uses ocean science to empower young people from underserved urban communities to transform their lives, their community, and our world as scientific and conservation leaders. Working in the San Diego community of City Heights, we deliver rigorous educational, scientific research, and environmental stewardship experiences that build curiosity, science understanding and skills, and leadership in underserved young people from kid to career.
Join us for a Living Lab Tour!
You’re invited to take a sneak peek inside the new Living Lab in advance of our grand opening later this spring. Beginning February 1st, and every Thursday thereafter, Ocean Discovery team members will welcome you to the Living Lab with an all-access tour of this state-of-the-art science education facility.
Construction of the 12,000 square foot, multi-level space is significantly complete and nearly ready for programs. In the meantime, we invite you to come explore the labs, study space, and grounds. Learn about our science, conservation, and well-being programs and discover ways that you can be involved. Click here to Register.
