EYE is a custom-designed field studies program for students throughout southern New England. Teachers build their Bay curriculum from a range of activities for a unique shipboard-shoreline-classroom or coastal-lab experience. Coastal or shipboard programs can be combined with activities at either of our education centers: the Bay Center in Providence or the Exploration Center in Newport.

EYE is recommended for large groups of up to 60 students. Program length varies from two to four hours (and may include a 30-minute lunch break). Activities are designed to meet Rhode Island Grade Span Expectations in a hands-on fashion and can be structured for students from kindergarten through high school. The three basic EYE programs are listed below. Call 401-272-3540, x133 for more options.
