During the school year, Algalita educators present comprehensive environmental education programs with activities that include formal classroom curricula, as well as exciting and innovative hands-on and web-based programs. Currently, we are able to reach almost 5,000 students worldwide through our science-based education programs:
In addition to fostering an interest in the sciences, these programs are designed to inspire students to discover their own sense of purpose, to equip them with the knowledge and skills to become leaders, and empower them to become stewards of their community and world. Over the years, Algalita has worked with a number of optimistic students who express a deep hope for change. Let's celebrate their achievements through the Algalita Youth in Action Timeline!
