NOAA's Coastal Ecosystem Learning Centers (CELC) Network, a consortium of 27 aquariums across North America, has gathered a list of their favorite remote educational opportunities to keep you and your families learning and entertained in the coming weeks. These videos and activities still allow you and your families to “visit” aquarium exhibits and take part in their activities from the comfort of your own home. The new CELC online resources webpage presents a roundup of available resources to help you safely hunker down, learn something new, and keep up with your favorite critters. This webpage will be updated weekly, and all past events will be made available in the archived section.
