History of Touch Tanks for Kids
Touch Tanks for Kids is a federally recognized 501 c 3 nonprofit corporation The organization’s mission includes advancing a grassroots environmental movement that improves the educational process while motivating more people to promote sustainability in our environment and to enhance enthusiasm about studying science and other subjects.
Since Touch Tanks for Kids was established on July 1, 2005, the organization has helped over 100 schools, museums, environmental centers, and other educational programs purchase teaching aquariums something that has proven valuable in teaching students about the environment and the delicate ecosystems that support life on our planet.
Touch Tanks for Kids is committed to its vision of improving environmental awareness through the use of real life learning habitats in the classroom and is thrilled to expand our programs to nature’s classroom.
When we established Touch Tanks for Kids, our primary focus was helping teachers pay for teaching aquariums and we still believe this is important work. AND, NOW, we have expanded our programs to include scholarships for students, veterans, seniors, and others that are interested in attending academic enrichment programs to include summer camps, college classes and other educational programs that support learning and environmental stewardship.
Our hopes include helping more people experience the beauty of nature so that they learn, grow and develop a deep appreciation for the delicate ecosystem that support life.
The organization offers aquarium grants, educational scholarships and works with educators to create fundraising plans that help reduce the environmental impact on the planet in concert with helping schools and other nonprofits identify environmentally focused funding opportunities.
