Schoodic Institute education programs encourage people to learn, discover, understand, and solve problems on their own by experimenting and evaluating possible solutions. School and community partnerships, residential and experiential learning opportunities, citizen science, and public events provide information of importance to Acadia National Park and the region, and increase public understanding and appreciation of science and nature.

For the last decade, Schoodic Institute has organized collaborations between teachers, students, and scientists to involve students in real research related to local natural resource problems such as shellfish management and air pollution. Learn More About Community Science Education.
